A. For Only $25.00 per year, individual members enjoy…
Paid membership allows individuals to attend five bi-monthly collaborative meetings at no charge, plus free admission to networking socials and special events.
NETWORKING AND SOCIALIZATION:
Meetings provide the opportunity to interact, face-to-face, to share Information and Referral resources, meet community members and service providers and find out what’s going on in the city and county.
MEETING A BROAD REPRESENTATION OF THE COMMUNITY:
Meeting attendees represent a diverse cross section of the community, providing multi-cultural and multi-generational perspectives.
PROMOTING “EASE OF ACCESS” TO PROGRAMS AND SERVICES
Coming to meetings is “one stop shopping”. All the “community partners” are in one room and the barriers to access are broken down.
PROVIDING OPPORTUNITIES FOR COLLABORATION:
DCP is creating a “model” for community collaboration, providing forums on relevant issues to promote partnerships between agencies.
OPPORTUNITIES TO MARKET & PROMOTE OUR VARIOUS ORGANIZATIONS:
Meetings provide a perfect “target audience” for getting the word out about our agencies or special events.
BETTER ACCESS TO FUNDING SOURCES:
Funders love collaborators. Through collaborative programming, agencies can better leverage funding as well as put their “fingers on the pulse” of what’s being funded out there.
DCP IS “ACTION BASED” / AN OPPORTUNITY TO GET INVOLVED:
We don’t just talk…we act! Through the work of “age based” committees, DCP works to broker and promote collaborative implementation of programs and services to the community.
FUN, FOOD AND SOCIALIZATION:
Every meeting begins with great food, often inspired by diverse cultures. Our interactive meeting format allows for opportunities to socialize and get better acquainted with those who live and work in our community.
