Finding a fresh perspective on your community

Expectations

As a participant in the Community Swap Program, our community agrees to the following expectations as we complete the program:

  • Our community will send a team to visit our partner community within a reasonable time frame, agreed upon with our partner community (both visits should occur within a month).
  • Our team will prepare a written report about our partner community (see appendix for examples).
  • Our team will prepare a presentation for our partner community, with information illustrated by slides (use the slide script form in the appendix to organize your comments).
  • At least two members of our team will prepare for the presentation, in case sickness or scheduling conflicts arise at the time scheduled for the town meeting in the partner community.
  • At least two members of our team will attend the town meeting in our partner community.
  • Our community will host our partner community team members for a town meeting. The town meeting will occur within four to six weeks of the community visits.

If our community is unable to send a team to visit our partner community, attend their town meeting, or host a town meeting, we will pay for the cost of a professional team to conduct the visit, present a report, and/or host a town meeting.
