South Mountain Partnership To Hold Virtual Fall Meeting Sept. 18

The South Mountain Partnership will hold a virtual Fall Partnership Meeting on September 18 from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. The Partnership covers Adams, Cumberland, Franklin, and York counties.
During the fall meeting, participants will learn about best practices for engaging the public and leaders in support of conservation and preservation and will hear from PennFuture representatives about how to secure resources for your organization during the pandemic. 
Participants will also have an opportunity to briefly share the work they are doing in the region.
“Now more than ever, we need to come together to support and expand the great conservation, historic preservation, and sustainable economic development work taking place in the South Mountain landscape,” said Katie Hess, Director of the South Mountain Partnership. “This meeting will provide communications, engagement, and advocacy tools to organizations that may be concerned about their ability to access funding and resources. Together we can help to ensure that the vital work of our partners continues now and into the future.”
About the meeting: twice annually (Spring and Fall), the Partnership holds a Partnership-wide meeting in which all partners and interested parties are invited to come together and build relationships and collaborations. 
These meetings are a chance to:
-- Connect or reconnect with the Partnership, learning more about the initiative and on-going projects;
-- Build and strengthen a network amongst organizations working throughout the region;
-- Spark conversation and collaboration across political and sectoral boundaries;
-- Help partners understand opportunities to engage in the on-going work of the Partnership; and
-- Allow partners to help define the direction of the Partnership.
The Fall Partnership Meeting is free, but space is limited, and all must register in advance  by September 14, 2020. Details about how to log-on to the webinar will be emailed to those who register a few days prior to the event.
