Community partners braved the unseasonal chilly temperatures to congregate at Auburn University’s Student Center in pursuits of obtaining communication strategies to further their organization’s development. These eager leaders of the community were attentive as the session’s speaker, Kristina Scott, gave her presentation on communication strategies. Ms. Scott is the executive director of Alabama Possible, which works to reduce poverty through education, collaboration and advocacy. Her experience as a seasoned coalition builder and attorney form a strategic combination of communications and analytical skills which contributes to her foundation of success.
Ms. Scott’s presentation was engaging and provided the right atmosphere for interaction. When asked pointed questions about their organizations goals, issues, and image, the community leaders answered with similar answers: obtaining donors, retaining volunteers, brand awareness, and community engagement, to name a few. Ms. Scott addressed these issue very directly with each community leader, tailored to the specific organization she was addressing. Overall, the the Community Partner Training was resourceful and insightful to the community partners who attended.
If these partners believe this training was beneficial in advancing their organizations, then there is no doubt that other community organizations can benefit, as well. The dedication demonstrated by these community leaders is unmatched because their passion for their work is the driving force for their success.
