Capacity Session A - Ready? Set? Go? Access Your Team's Readiness

An opportunity, a glaring population need, a call from a local partner, an objective of the municipal strategic
plan, a chance to go to a new scale and vision of community. How can you assess if your organization or
team is ready to take it on? How do you best play to your strengths, and identify consultants, partners and
other resources to address gaps? How might your staffing and financial resources be stretched? Are you
prepared to entertain additional risk? What skills or tools might board members need and what are some
effective strategies for maximizing your governance team? This session will walk attendees through the
steps to identify your team’s readiness to undertake a regeneration initiative. Our two speakers have walked
this path with a broad range of organizations from non-profits doing housing for the first time, to publicprivate
non-profit partnerships undertaking complex revitalization projects.
