I attended the annual River Rally event sponsored by River Network and was very impressed with the entire event. I attended workshops and a one-on-one session that inspired me and helped guide me in endeavors for my organization. It was also just incredibly encouraging to be among so many people working toward the same goals. Thanks to River Network for organizing and sponsoring such a great event!
River Network's River Rally has been a part of training for watershed coordinators in my state. Many watershed groups operate with very small budgets. The scholarship program to cover expences for the training conference registration allows so many more folks the unique opportunity of networking with
collegues frm around the country and to learn from exerts in their fields. The webinars throughout the year are very beneficial to continue that dialoge.
River Network lives up to its name. Those of us who work with rivers and watersheds are usually working within a local sphere. It is so helpful to have an organization that taps into the expertise throughout the country on issues that affect each of us. Whether it's insurance, organizational policy, strategies, or inspiration, River Network has been a source of great information and guidance.
River Network focuses on the core of the organization to ensure that it is operating effectively and efficiently so that when these organizations work on particular issues they have the capacity. They also connect watershed stewards so that they can mentor and learn from each other.
River Network dessiminates well researched and helpful information. They encourage dialogues between groups and helps get our questions answered. Their published products are spot on.
River Network provides outstanding service and development for water protection groups throughout the nation. They are a role model in nonprofit leadership for all of us to follow.
As Executive Director for a small watershed organization I rely on the information and services of River Network. River Network is my "go to" source for anything from issues to how to fund raise, increase public awareness or build a better board. Since River Network is about water and rivers, it is exactly what I need.
River Network's main role is to protect our rivers. The mission is simple and they do a really great job accomplishing it. They are pro-active and use their funds wisely. Water is essential and they are protecting it! Margaret King, President, InfoRich Group, Inc. www.inforichgroup.com
