Oregon Heritage Commission Offers Free Fall Workshop in GP on November 30th

The Oregon Heritage Commission is offering a free workshop on organizational planning and prioritization in five locations around the state this fall including Grants Pass.

These workshops are designed to help heritage nonprofits, historical societies, museums, archives, libraries, and other related organizations approach work and project planning in a supportive environment.

This workshop series aims at removing any stigma or fear by providing support and a pathway for organizations that would like to embark on goal-setting journeys or establishing work plans for projects and organizational priorities. This workshop is an interactive opportunity to lay stepping stones for where to begin on this process especially when and where resources are limited for creating or executing a full strategic plan -- or there is hesitation or fear around that process.

The workshops will be presented by Kyrie Kellet, a skilled facilitator and planner in the heritage area. Kellet is a National Association for Interpretation Certified Planner with over 20 years of experience in museums, parks and gardens. She specializes in developing plans that allow organizations of all sizes to impact their communities in creative and meaningful ways.

The Oregon Heritage Commission Fall Workshop in Grants Pass is scheduled for November 30th from 1 to 4 p.m.. There are additional workshops planned for Baker City, Woodburn, McMinnville and Newport as well as a virtual workshop set for December 8th.
