Working the Coalition

Key Elements of State Coalitions

Provide educational opportunities for Steering Committee and/or Board; promote networking and information sharing at every meeting; foster growth of interpersonal relationships and build a sense of community and connection among Steering Committee/Board members as well as a sense of shared ownership.

Coalition Example - "We hosted Charlene Boyd Oct 5, 2006 for an all day educational forum on culture change. Lunch was provided courtesy of Northwest Health Foundation. The afternoon was spent with everyone participating in interactive, practical, useful exercises with take home tools provided. " Lynda Crandall, Making Oregon Vital for Elders (M.O.V.E)
