2024 FGCU Onsite Training Session

Local Government Partnerships: Real Stories on Successes and Failures and the Reasons for Each Outcome

Program Summary:

"It's not local government's job to provide services, it's their job to see that services are provided" (anonymous). The multiple tiers of government service providers which include federal, state, local (general purpose and special districts), nonprofit and private sectors, no longer have a structure similar to a layer cake, reflecting a division of service providers: rather, it's evolved into a marble cake like structure blending multiple sectors into an inconsistent role to provide services. This training program is an opportunity for local government staff to come together to listen to real stories from experienced panelists who have navigated this marble cake and listen to what works and doesn't work and the reasons why in each case. It's also an opportunity for attendees to share their own experiences and collectively come away with ideas and insight to improve partnerships in their agencies.
