The local host is responsible for:

  • Recruiting both active coalition members and people from sectors that could help strengthen the coalition (such as from faith communities, employers, civic groups, local government leaders, or local colleges or universities). The workshop is designed for a diverse group of 20 to 80 people who are motivated to help the community address the opioid crisis.
  • Securing a space that has a suitable meeting room for the general training presentations and smaller rooms for the break-out sessions.  At certain points during the workshop, there will be up to  5 parallel break-out sessions on different topics.  All rooms should have a good Internet connection.  At least two rooms (the main room and one of the breakout rooms) should have a projector and sound system for the simulcast training or Webinar presenters. 
  • Providing 2-4 people who will help facilitate some structured small group sessions (after receiving pre-workshop training from the InsightFormation team).
  • Printing out materials to be used during the workshop by participants.
  • Coordinate meeting space for each post-workshop Webinars and coaching sessions in the weeks following the workshop.
