Main Street Basic Training has been a staple of our spring calendar, and this year is no different. We’re incorporating Main Street Basic Training into the convening schedule, while also offering a second, more advanced track for folks who are familiar with the Main Street approach.
Main Street Basic Training is a great opportunity for new Main Street Staff, volunteers, and other individuals invested in their downtowns to get acquainted with the specifics of what it takes to run a successful Main Street Program with methods that have been proven to work in hundreds of communities throughout the country.
We know that there are many opportunities for Main Street staff and volunteers to attend fantastic conferences and trainings held by other organizations, many that we partner with, and our goal with the Spring Convening is to focus specifically on issues in our historic downtowns throughout Minnesota. A complete schedule will be released soon, with sessions focusing on Volunteers, Fundraising, Navigating Diversity, Vacancies, and much more.
In addition to the Basic Training and mini sessions, we’ll also be leading a half-day workshop on April 15 highlighting Artists on Main Street methods and ideas that can be applied in any community at nearly any funding level, not just the communities who were recipients of the Artists on Main Street grant.
