Annual Dinner & Program

Thurday, December 15, 2022

Wakefield Park Community Building, Maplewood

Thank you to those who joined us! The evening began with time for socializing and hors d-oeuvres, followed by a buffet dinner. RCLLG President Scott Arcand, Vice President Marylee Abrams, Treasurer Teresa Miller, and Past President Jan Jenson conducted a presentation of RCLLG’s Year-In-Review and the 2023 strategic plan.

We were thrilled to feature Dr. Irina Fursman as our speaker for the evening. Irina is the Co-Founder and CEO of HueLife.

It was a beautiful, snowy evening full of food, conversation, and inspiration. Thank you to these sponsors for helping make the evening possible: HueLife, Karen Arcand’s Child Care, Kraus-Anderson, and Costco.

Dr. Irina Fursman Presentation

Collaborative Leadership: what does it take to lead in cross-sector collaborations.

Partnerships and collaborations are easy to start, but hard to manage and sustain. When leaders join forces for the greater good, they often focus on the benefits of collaboration or partnership. However, the benefits to the whole are not always aligned with the interests of its parts. To position cross-agency collaboration for success, an intentional process of system development must take place. In this presentation, Dr Fursman will share her observations, lessons learned, and best practices for building and sustaining loosely organized systems. She draws these lessons from her own research and applications in business as well as community organizing efforts in Ukraine.

Thank You, Sponsors!

Congratulations, 2023 Executive Committee!
