The Main Street America Institute: Sustainable Organization Course is Coming Soon

January 9, 2019 | The Main Street America Institute's Sustainable Organization Course is Coming Soon |

The Main Street America Institute’s Advanced Principles of Sustainable Organization, a three-week, live online course, begins February 5. Join commercial district revitalization professionals from across the country to learn best practices in creating a volunteer-driven, sustainably-funded and community-supported program.

How can participation help you? Read on for the recommendation of your colleague, Cathleen Edgerly, Director of Howell Main Street (MI), a 2018 GAMSA winner:
“Last year I took the Sustainable Organizations Course. As a community practicing the Main Street method for 15 years, this training was instrumental in re-energizing our staff and board, while reminding us of fundamentals that would help ensure our continued success in our Michigan town.  As the Director of the organization, this course helped me lead our team in developing a Fund Development plan that could help diversify our program's revenue stream and keep the program sustainable. Over the last year, we have put into practice a number of the principals shared in this course. I highly recommend that seasoned program and community development professionals take this course. It will not only be a great professional development tool, but will also enhance your leadership capabilities.”

Hone your skills, increase your knowledge and take the next step for your community. Learn more about the course, learning objectives, and our instructor, Mary Helmer of Main Street Alabama.
