    Strengthening the Jefferson County Community through Partnership

    Government, nonprofit, businesses and the faith-based community will discover the power of working together at The 2nd Power of Partnership Conference on Thursday, February 24, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Arvada Covenant Church, 5555 Ward Road, Arvada.

    Partnership is truly powerful. When collaboration takes place, new and creative ideas are born, various viewpoints are shared and positive results take place. Come learn how partnerships between faith-based organizations, non-profits and government agencies weave together and join forces to be better and stronger for the communities they serve. 

    Susan Franklin from Jefferson County Human Services, Community Assistance Division commented, “There is a lot of passion in the community for topics such as abused and neglected children, homelessness and domestic violence victims but people just don’t know how to put their passion into action. This conference will help steer that energy.”

    In February 2009, the first of its kind conference was held to highlight those partnerships and to encourage people in the community to work together for the benefit of the community. Over 250 people attended the conference from all over the country. Mikki Le Vett, Children's Director of Applewood Community Church, stated, "It was great to see everyone in one place, at one table. The conference was exceptional, out of the box and very well put together."

    This year, early registration is only $15 and includes breakfast, lunch and materials. A late registration fee of $20 is required after February 20, 2011.

    This conference is recommended for anyone who has a desire to partner with others to make the community a better place to live. It is expected to sell out, so please register early.

    Funds left over from the conference will be donated to Mountain Resource Center (MRC), a community-based non-profit serving mountain regions.
