WE’VE GOT OUR PRIORITIES STRAIGHT!
Thanks to the amazing work of Mary Richardson, Victoria Rocke, and you all in April and May, RDN has settled on its member priorities and created its network model for how we want to work together moving forward. Did you miss the email about it sent out in June? Contact us at email@example.com for PDFs that you can share with your team and stakeholders. (The materials are available in French and English.)
RDN’s core funding is up for renewal this fall, and Cathy and the team are gearing up to renegotiate the network’s contract with the SRQEA and complete that process.
COMING UP—FALL CHECK-INS
ES recipients can expect a quick check-in from Rachel at the end of August. Do you have new staff members on your team with questions about how the mid-term reporting works? This is their chance to get all the answers before filling in the report! In the meantime, feel free to reach out to Rachel for any needs related to the Employment Strategy.
NEW—SHARED ONLINE RESOURCE LIBRARY
RDN’s exclusive ERCC/Members shared resource library is online and available to the executive directors of RDN-supported ERCC recipient organizations via Google Drive. When accessing the library, be sure to have a look at the How To guide and the Master List. They’ll help you find your way around the folders. And remember to download a copy of the file before modifying it. 😉
If you’re an executive director of an RDN member organization and you didn’t receive email including the link to the resource library, please contact Rachel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
FRENCH FOR THE WORKFORCE
