Community Trainings Set Across Region
Learn More About Engaging Your Community
The Houston-Galveston Area Council, along with the Coordinating Committee of local governments, non-profit agencies and educational and research organizations, is developing a Regional Plan for Sustainable Development. As part of that plan development, we are hosting community training opportunities across the region. These workshops will offer participants the chance to learn about widening the base that their organizations reach and how to effectively communicate and engage participation. Participants will also learn about free and interactive tools to help with their communication and engagement efforts.
