Planning Effective Projects for Coastal Communities


In this virtual, highly interactive workshop, using your idea, you will learn how to design a project that reaches the right audience, has the intended impact and achieves measurable results. You'll sharpen your information gathering, project planning and evaluation skills, and walk away with the ability and confidence to build in the accountability and strategic thinking needed to achieve project success.  Join CBNERR-VA and NOAA's Office for Coastal Management for this *FREE* offering. 

While you are encouraged to attend with project team members, attending as an individual is just as valuable.  All coastal practitioners welcome.
