We strongly believe that our existing guides, Charting
the Course and it’s companion, the Collective Impact Benchmarks are fantastic
resources. However, it can be difficult to find the time and bandwidth to truly
reflect and absorb the content and its application in your community. To help
your LCAN do this, we designed this retreat-like professional development opportunity to enmesh you in the framework from beginning to end. The Academies serve as a learning lab for folks to get away from the office, gather tools, and share with the only other people that understand what challenges and opportunities you are experiencing - your fellow LCAN Leaders.
MCAN combines both Traditional and Advanced Maritime Academies as well as ALL NEW CONTENT for previous graduates of the advanced course. That means we’re offering high-quality training on the Collective Impact framework as applied to Local College Access Networks for Coordinators and Leadership Team members of all levels at one event. We’ll have all three groups together at one time, and split into “tracks” for each level (essentially “101, 201, and 301”). We think this will be a fantastic opportunity for LCANs to send multiple Leadership Team members, as the coordinator and other past Maritime graduates can attend alongside first-time cadets while still going to sessions that are relevant to their experience. All meals and several events will be held together as a larger group to facilitate reflection as a group.
Registration, lodging, and group meals will be sponsored by MCAN for in-state attendees. The only expense Michigan attendees are expected to pay is travel to and from the venue. Our out-of-state attendees have a $300 registration fee and are responsible for paying for lodging.
