Portland participants were somehow more energized on the second day of the forum than they were on the first day, which allowed our final forum of 2013 to end on a lively note this past Thursday. Participants fully engaged in the sector and state discussions and reported back to the group with sincerity and a refreshing level of humor. During one group activity, the museum sector demonstrated their commitment to advancing communication not only within their sector but across sectors by each signing their names on the Post-Its seen below.

Participants seemed eager to move forward with their respective state plans to foster communication, coordination, and collaboration among their fellow state agencies. One participant commented on our forum evaluation that his/her state colleagues, “already have plans underway to meet — invitations went out today, the day after the forum.”

    Having attended the first forum in Philadelphia back in April I’m excited to read that the momentum of this project continues two+ months later! Let’s utilize the web site to keep things moving forward on this incredibly important initiative.
