Learn how to organize and implement your idea successfully
Has your organization identified a new program or a major improvement that needs to be implemented? Are you ready to make that idea a reality in a way that saves time, money and sets the work up for success? Then this workshop is for you!

Bring your project idea to this workshop and we will teach you how to organize it into a straightforward project plan and successfully manage its implementation. You don’t need a MBA or business certification to do this. We’ve taken the best and most important elements of formal project management and change management methodologies and boiled them down to a process that is straightforward and easy to use. And we’ve tested our approach with dozens of civic-sector professionals just like you - it really works!
 
This two-day workshop is a practical, hands-on experience covering all of the essential elements of writing and managing a project plan in the stakeholder-rich environment of civic-sector organizations (education, government, nonprofits). This is a phenomenal skill-building / professional development opportunity AND you will walk away with a substantially complete project plan that you can use to officially launch your project idea.

Participants will learn how to:
Develop success measures for their project
Determine project scope – what’s included and what’s not
Analyze and plan for risks to the project’s success
Build project advocates and minimize resistance (especially important in the civic-sector!)
Create a project schedule
Lead a project team
Track progress

Participants must bring a current project idea to the workshop. Class-size is limited to ensure participants have the opportunity to discuss the issues faced on their particular project.  This workshop is ideal for teams working together on one project idea.

In-home DNA test kits have become readily available and many people have now tested. All of the major test companies offer options of ethnicity estimate and matching to people who share DNA with the test taker. A number of people are confused by their results and not sure what to do with them after receiving them. First there will be a brief discussion about what each of the major testing companies offer and how they present the results. Ethnicity estimates and how they can be used will be discussed next. The majority of the lecture will be on understanding and using the DNA results as another piece of evidence in your family genealogy.

Biography

After adding DNA results to her tree she’s been able to extend her paternal grandfather’s line of the family back a generation. Her primary focus has been using DNA results to enhance the family tree and to find cousins as well as researching Irish records. Patricia has a Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of CA, Davis. She worked as a research chemist in industry for 30 years and then as an instructor at Eastern Michigan University for 6 years. Her scientific background has been a huge asset in her genealogical research. Currently she is the US moderator for the DNA Painter Facebook User Group.

New Opportunities

The North Shore Campus is an affordable alternative to the expense of a college campus, with panerai replica watches flexible programming that directly addresses the economic needs of our community. The decision to expand was based on solid research regarding student needs, employment needs, economic trends, and sustainability

Ron McGriff, the consultant who helped us choose our new facility location states, “Through effective promotion and high quality staff assistance, the CCHE program continues to grow and be a very important service for the region. Interviews with students revealed the high regard held for the abilities and assistance of CCHE staff members and also the importance to them of the availability of the organization’s services.”
