PEER ADVISOR NETWORK
Weds. March 16
10am-11:30am
FAIRFIELD MUSEUM & HISTORICAL SOCIETY
For the third in our FY16 series on SHARING RESOURCES: Expertise To Go, we focus on the PEER ADVISOR NETWORK - a service offered through the CT Office of the Arts for all arts and humanities organizations in the state. Expert advisors are available for the subsidized rate of $100/day (with the state paying an additional $200/day). The benefits are many, including an initial self-assessment of organizational health. 

On Weds. March 16, hear John Cusano, (Community Development Officer, CT Office of the Arts) explain how the system works. Then hear from client and advisor from two quite different examples of projects that used advisors from the Peer Advisor Network. What worked, what didn't? What advice do client and advisor have for others considering this valuable service? There will be ample time for questions and discussion.
