02/22/17 You’re Invited - Moosehead Lake Regional Master Plan Future Think-Tank Workshop - March 9th and 10th

On behalf of the Moosehead Lake Regional Economic Development Corporation, we would like to invite you or an associate to participate in an important Future Think-Tank Workshop for the Moosehead Lake Regional Master Plan.

The Moosehead Lake Regional Master Plan is a unique process to create a long-term (10 + years) vision for the Moosehead Lake Region. The Moosehead Lake Regional Master Plan will serve as an important foundation for other strategic efforts. This workshop helps us ‘plan for the future’, and includes strategic foresight and the development of a series of plausible futures.

The Future Think-Tank Workshop will take place over two days: Thursday, March 9, 2017 from 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM and Friday, March 10 from 8:00 AM -12:00 Noon. The workshop will be held at Bartley’s Facility 241 Pritham Ave Greenville. Lunch on Thursday will be provided, as well as coffee, tea and refreshments on both days. It is important that you attend both sessions.

This workshop will bring together a group of key stakeholders with a broad diversity of knowledge and experience. The workshop is based on scenario-based strategic planning - a process that has been used successfully in locations across North America, Europe and elsewhere in the world.

The future think-tank workshop includes:

• Determining how “future ready” we are.

• A review of important global, national and local trends.

• Identification of the key “drivers” shaping the future.

• Formation of four plausible scenarios for the future.

• Identification of the preferred and expected future, and implications.

• Potential action steps.

The Future Think-Tank Workshop will provide critical input as part of the comprehensive stakeholder engagement process that will shape The Moosehead Lake Regional Master Plan.

As a valued member of the community, your input and attendance is very important. We hope that you are able join us. If you cannot attend, please let us know as soon as possible so that your space may be offered to another individual.

Please RSVP by March 3, 2017 to Moosehead Lake Region Economic Development Corporation at email jcleveland@cdcorp.org.

We look forward to seeing you in March!
