A.C.E. Training to benefit Housing Hope


March 1, 2013

Join Communication Resources Northwest on Friday, March 8, 2013 for “Snohomish County Builds Hope,” an all-day training geared toward helping professionals in the architecture, contractor and engineer (A.C.E.) industries thrive in their field. This one-day seminar focuses on how A.C.E. professionals can adjust to the new marketplace — building relationships, developing effective proposals, and communicating clearly and strategically in the short-list interview.

The cost is $250 and will be held at Housing Hope’s Ken Schilaty Learning Center at 5908 Evergreen Way, Everett. All proceeds go directly to Everett based non-profit Housing Hope, to provide homes and services to homeless and low-income families in Snohomish County.

The day will be led by Communication Resources Northwest President Meg Winch. The topics of discussion will be Writing Winning Proposals and Effective Presentations by Design. There will also be a panel discussion featuring special guests invited by Communication Resources Northwest.

All participants will receive all training handouts, a copy of Meg Winch’s booklet “Effective Presentations by Design: The Coaching Skills Toolkit”, a follow-up training video and admission to the industry panel.

The registration fees are to benefit Housing Hope’s latest project – the expansion of Woods Creek Village in Monroe. The site currently has six homeless units for families transitioning out of homelessness and two affordable rent units for low-income families. The expansion adds a second building with six additional homeless units and is slated to open in early April.
