VI RC&D to Host Short Course to Improve Project Skills


Jan. 5, 2007 – To help project managers succeed in their fields, the V.I. Resource Conservation & Development Council Inc. (VI RC&D), in partnership with the UVI Cooperative Extension Service, is hosting a two-day, hands-on Project Design and Evaluation Short Course, conducted by the NOAA Coastal Services Center. The short course's interactive curriculum is designed to help management, education, outreach and research professionals increase their project effectiveness with the knowledge, skills, and tools they need to design and implement projects that have measurable impacts on their target audience. The course will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Jan. 29–30, in the UVI Research and Extension Center Room 133, on St. Croix.
"This training is ideal for government agencies, community groups and non-profit organizations managing projects that require strong evaluation components," said Julie Wright, RC&D coordinator. "It will help them design projects that have specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and timely goals and objectives. It will also help them design their project evaluation strategy, which is a key requirement for successful project management."
Training information and materials will be provided, along with refreshment breaks and luncheons, for a nominal $50 per person registration fee. VIRC&D Council members will receive a 20 percent discount.
Classroom space is limited, so participants are requested to register no later than Friday, Jan. 19, by contacting the VI RC&D office at 692-9632, ext. 5, or [email protected], or visiting the office at the USDA Service Center on the 2nd Floor of the Merrill Lynch Building in Gallows Bay, St. Croix.
