The Highs and Lows of Partnerships
Co-Presenters: Rob Armstrong, YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka; Marta Proctor, Town of Gravenhurst
Over the years, agencies have begun to establish collaborative working relationships with the aim of serving citizens more effectively by building on the strengths of individual partners. To ensure that mutual goals are achieved, each partner must assess the “gives” and “gets” of the relationship, and all partners must work hard to keep the communication lines open. This candid discussion focuses on the risks and rewards of working in collaboration with other recreation partners.
