Finding a fresh perspective on your community

SELECTING TEAM MEMBERS

The Team Leader's Role

The Team Leader, working with the team members or the sponsoring organization, is responsible for:

  • Selecting team members for the visit.
  • Coordinating the visit to the partner community.
  • Summarizing the findings from the visit and writing a report for the partner community.
  • Presenting highlights of the report and making a slide presentation during a town meeting in the partner community.
  • Hosting a town meeting in your community to hear your partner community's report.

The Team Leader, working with Extension staff, will recruit team members who will visit the partner community. The size of your team will vary depending on the size of your partner community. Communities with a population of 1500 or fewer require at least four people on the visiting team. Communities with a larger population may require as many as 10 team members to check out various interest areas.

Team members will eat lunch during their visit to the partner community. Before trying to recruit team members, decide if they will be reimbursed for their expenses such as lunch and mileage to the partner community.
