The rise of the Collective Impact model guided many networks in strategies for utilizing a backbone organization as the primary governing entity and many resources have emerged for how to implement that structure. However, as that model has been implemented, people are curious about what other types of methods for governing networks might be possible, and are looking for alternatives to this top-down approach to network governance. Specifically, people are looking for governance models that will empower network members to engage in shared accountability, shared facilitation, and shared voice. In this webinar, Blythe Butler brings to life a conversation many of us are looking for, and sets the stage for digging deeper into this “big topic” of networks in today’s fast moving collaborative spaces. We also still have a spots available for the *Network Leadership Training Academy taking place April 15-17 in Denver, *a 3-day interactive workshop for people engaged in the network way of working that are looking to develop skills for building, managing, and evaluating more effective cross-sector and community networks. Registration open until April 1: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.visiblenetworklabs.com_nlta&d=DwIFaQ&c=pZJPUDQ3SB9JplYbifm4nt2lEVG5pWx2KikqINpWlZM&r=uXI5O6HThk1ULkPyaT6h2Ws3RKNKSY__GQ4DuS9UHhs&m=WRdjfeaWBB6Eez-A3moujWmRIFc832rJXnW1mUod0fk&s=Ry8GEVnRw_bk97UFYfUBkH9L73piVQk51kC3sIwpPNo&e= Thank you!
