What Is This?
The REC Process is a three-part conversation among community members taking place virtually during February and March 2021. It is a vital opportunity for community members from Adams, Clay, Nuckolls, and Webster counties to work together to develop a vision and action plan that ensures everyone can thrive here! The REC Process will use YOUR perspectives to explore core issues and develop a shared vision and commitment to positively impact those issues. Along the way, you will build new relationships and increase your understanding of what is needed and wanted in our community.
Who Can Participate?
The REC Process is open to all. This kind of collective conversation must include a wide representation of viewpoints, experiences, and stakeholders to build the most complete picture of what is needed and wanted to best impact the community for the long-term. If you are interested, we welcome your participation!
Who Is ‘In Charge’?
The REC Process is being coordinated by the Community Impact Network of Adams, Clay, Nuckolls and Webster counties – a multi-sector collection of agencies, institutions and organizations. This is a Collaborative that includes a Steering Committee and a fiscal sponsor (the United Way of South Central Nebraska). Funding for the work of the Network comes from the Nebraska Children and Family Foundation.
How Will It Work?
Participants in the REC Process will engage in 3 facilitated virtual sessions, each lasting 90 minutes. The sessions will include an examination of community well-being data, break-out conversations with fellow participants, and opportunities to learn together. Once registered you will receive more details about the agenda, the process, and how we will capture and share everyone’s perspectives. These are not presentations: they are real opportunities for you to share your perspectives and listen to others do the same.
When Are the Sessions?
To make it easy to fit into your schedule, there are three versions of each session: one on Sunday evenings, one during the lunch-hour Tuesdays and one on Thursday evenings. You choose which time frame works best for you:
|Day of Week & Time||Session #1||Session #2||Session #3||Session Registration|
|Sundays from 7:00pm – 8:30pm||Feb. 7th||Feb. 21st||March 7th|
|Tuesdays from 12:00 – 1:30pm||Feb. 9th||Feb. 23rd||March 9th|
|Thursdays from 7:00pm – 8:30pm||Feb. 11th||Feb. 25th||March 11th|
Ideally, participants will choose which day of the week works best, and just attend those sessions, yet if you need to ‘skip around’, we will make it work!
Do I have to attend all sessions?
Each conversation will build off the one before, so it will work best to attend all three sessions. HOWEVER, your participation is the most important part of this – if you can only attend one or two sessions, that is okay!
How will we connect virtually?
The sessions will be hosted on Zoom, a virtual meeting platform. You can participate through a computer or your phone that is connected to the internet. You do not need to have a video camera, but it helps for people to see you. You must be “Registered” to participate. Simply click on the link above next to the day/time that works best for you. Read the instructions on the registration email and test your connection beforehand to make sure everything works. Any problems, please contact Brady Rhodes at (402) 461-8417.
