Handbooks and Manuals
Photos, quotes and stories by LISC/Chicago's scribes and photographers capture the "how" of community development as 900 practitioners from around the country gathered for the Getting It Done conference on March 26-27, 2008.
This booklet from the Getting It Done conference taps into experienced practitioners in Chicago's New Communities Program to find out how they use these tools: engagement, deal making, communicating, leveraging, planning, leading, playing and evaluating. Checklists in each category provide a quick way to see if you are covering the essentials.
