What if your town council, your chamber of commerce, and your school board sat down together for a public meeting just to compare calendars?
What if these leaders started talking about possible cooperation, shared projects, or mutual goals?
What if more local boards and leaders began to participate, aligning their own goals and efforts with more of the community?
What if it generated open discussion about the community as a whole?
What if neighboring towns sat down together and compared calendars and projects?
What if it worked so well that your community started to do it annually, quarterly, or even monthly?
What if it started with just one meeting?
This is one of those ideas that hit me while talking with the smart people of Concrete, Washington. Does anyone actually do this sort of thing?
