Location: In person at Public Health Conference Room, available online with Zoom

Lunch provided. RSVP required for lunch!

First of 3 workshops to complete the Sublette 5-Year Strategic Plan. This is an opportunity for you or your organization to have a voice in the next 5 years of community prevention grant priorities. The 5 year strategic plan is a grant requirement that needs about 3 more people involved in the planning process. My grandmother always said: If you don't ask for what you want, you for sure won't get what you want and you are not allowed to complain. Tracy Young from Wyoming Association of Sheriffs and Chiefs of Police will facilitate this workshop. Please contact Trisha if you can attend.
