NMC Urges Community to Attend Free Project Development Training (October 20, 2009)

The Northern Marianas College is encouraging the CNMI community to attend the Administration for Native Americans’ (ANA) free Project Development Training, which is designed to provide participants the skills to plan successful community development projects.

The ANA is a federal agency that promotes self-sufficiency and cultural preservation among Native Americans and Pacific Islanders through training and financial and technical assistance.

The training, which was also held at other locations in the Pacific, such as Hawaii, Guam, and American Samoa, will be conducted at the Multi-Purpose Center in Susupe from October 26-28, 2009, from 9am to 5pm on each day. Participants will need to register beforehand as seats are limited.

Topics at the three day-long training will include identifying and documenting specific community problems needing to be addressed, creating a work plan to meet community goals, developing outcomes and measuring overall community impact, and determining and securing funding sources needed to complete the project. The training will also include a grant writing workshop.

“The ANA has been highly instrumental in many of the College’s community projects not only by providing funding but also by offering training and other professional development opportunities to NMC staff,” said NMC President Dr. Carmen Fernandez. “We would like to encourage all interested members in the community to take advantage of the training opportunities that are provided.”

Through ANA funding and in partnership with IT&E, the College has been able to provide live telecasting of conferences and forums through its video teleconferencing (VTC) system for nearly two years. Other events include the NMC-sponsored Delegate Forum in October 2008 and the recent ARRA Program Presentation of Proposals.
