Our Partners Say...

We wanted to capture lessons that MACED has learned from collaborating with other organizations, to move our practice forward. Rural Support Partners worked with a staff planning team to design an excellent workshop that met all our goals.

RSP brought ideas on the topics as well as workshop design and facilitation expertise. They were great listeners and at each step of the process helped us clarify what we were seeking. The outcome was a meaningful set of shared insights, owned by our staff, that we can incorporate into future planning processes.“
