Androscoggin River Community Engagement Forum

  • Tuesday, September 13, 2011
  • 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM
  • Hilton Garden Inn, Auburn, ME
What meaningful actions shall we take to support the economic and environmental vitality of the Androscoggin River Corridor?

You are invited to an idea-generating forum regarding the economic and environmental well-being of the Androscoggin River.  Androscoggin Valley Council of Governments (AVCOG) and Verso Paper Corp. are hosting this forum because of their joint interests in improving the vitality and quality of place along the river corridor and in the region.  

This Community Engagement Forum process is a new way of bringing people together to talk more broadly about what is important to them regarding the economic and environmental importance of the Androscoggin River. We hope attendees leave with action plans toward achieving goals discussed during this session or, at the very least, new contacts with common interests regarding the river. This project is an expansion of a multi-year commitment Verso made to work more within the community around issues that matter regarding the river and coincides with AVCOG’s desire to identify important issues and develop regional plans and priorities. 

As cohosts, AVCOG and Verso want to hear what matters most to you and your community and what you want to do to address these key issues. We want to create meaningful partnerships to help strengthen the quality and vitality of our river corridor. The Institute for Civic Leadership will facilitate this Open Space style gathering. Open Space is an inclusive process for exploring ideas. It deliberately gives participants the space and time to raise ideas, hold conversations and generate possibilities. We truly want your voice, opinions and ideas in the mix during this meeting!

Please RSVP by September 6, 2011 by registering online here. The forum is free with continental breakfast and lunch provided.
