(Golden, BC) The Community Coordination project has connected with one of the leaders of communication and collaboration in Golden - the Early Childhood Development Coalition (ECDC).
On Thursday September 26, Ryan Watmough was invited to present to the ECDC's first meeting after their summer break. Mr. Watmough was very interested in hearing what the ECDC members learned over their years forming, storming, norming and performing as a group focused on a particular developmental stage - 0 to 6 year olds. Mr. Watmough is hoping to take these lessons and share with other groups, who are looking to form coalitions.
