Are you looking for a new to hold meetings and events to get the most input from those who attend? Join us for this interactive workshop!
The World Cafe is a collaborative group facilitation tool that brings people together through conversation to share ideas around questions that matter. It is a tool to use in your work with groups of all sizes. This highly interactive workshop will be led by Toby Spanier, University of Minnesota Extension educator, along with members of Vision 2040 Leadership's Class of 2017.
You will learn the principles of the technique and also participate in a World Cafe to help you understand the process. This event is for anyone who leads groups or runs meetings.
The workshop is being held on Monday, November 14 from 2:00 to 4:30 p.m.
Life Center Auditorium on the MinnWest Technology Campus, Willmar.
Tickets are $5 for Vision 2040 Leadership Alumni, Participants, and Design Team members and $10 for community members.

“I'm honored to be part of Vision 2040 and the team that is forging the future of the Willmar Lakes Area community. We are a strong vibrant community that works hard and works together through partnerships and collaborative efforts. This spark of leadership for this is caused by people willing to risk failure to reach for success. We have seen there's no limit to what a group can do if the individuals don't care who gets the credit.”
“We are proud to be part of the Vision 2040 effort here at the community foundation because it aligns with our core mission to engage people, connect resources and build community. It was an easy choice to invest not only financial resources to support Vision 2040 but also to lend significat board and staff time to help drive this effort forward. It's transforming our communities for the future our residents dream about-using their ideas and energies to make good things happen organically in real time and for years to come-and we want to be part of making that possible!”
I made connections with community members and found many common visions. I have begun to get more active in the community due to the connections.
