Taking Your Breastfeeding Coalition to the Next Level
Brenda Bandy, Kansas Breastfeeding Coalition (KBC), Monica Esparza, and Jennifer Mastripolito, New Mexico Breastfeeding Taskforce (NMBTF)
Looking for ways to move your state breastfeeding coalition from all volunteers to paid staff? From donations to contracts and grants? During this interactive webinar, you will have the opportunity to hear from the Executive Directors of the New Mexico Breastfeeding Taskforce (NMBTF) and the Kansas Breastfeeding Coalition (KBC) to learn how they have successfully moved their coalition to the next level. Following a brief presentation from the NMBT & KBC, the panel will be open for questions and discussion with the audience about the practicalities of building a strong state breastfeeding coalition. Ask questions about contracts for special projects, using independent contractors, and much more. Individuals from coalitions at all levels of capacity are encouraged to join so we can learn from each other.
