Executive Director Becky Stacy and PD Manager “KT” attended last week’s Brushy Fork Leadership Institute at Berea College. The Institute is a Strategic Initiative designed to work to strengthen local and regional leadership in Central Appalachia for more than 34 years. It is based on the belief that local people should lead the development of their communities and strive to increase the number of people assuming leadership roles in Appalachian Communities and organizations. It brings together community, non-profit, and government leaders to build skills and make connections to support their work.
Becky and KT chose the track, “Spoonful of Honey:…A healthy Approach to Fundraising”, with Nieta Wigginton, and gained great insight to creative ways to secure funding for AECN’s work.
