My guest this week is Nancy Warner, the executive director of the Initiative for Rural Innovation and Stewardship. IRIS, as it is called, has been one of the most effective community building organizations in North Central Washington. They focus on discovering and sharing stories of community success in dealing with challenges as a way of inspiring civic resilience.
On Thursday, Nov. 15, IRIS will be hosting its annual success summit in Pateros where we will learn how that town recovered and was made stronger after the devastating wildfire of 2014.
The annual Success Summit is one of the most inspiring events available to the residents of North Central Washington.
Attending the event will restore your faith in community, in your neighbors and you will come away with a greater sense of what is possible. I hope you enjoy our conversation.
