Lessons Learned  A local banker, business owner, or community advocate should promote the workshop to peers. In towns where we did not have that advocate, our participant numbers suffered.  Our workshops were an hour and a half long for virtual programs and two hours long in person, not four hours as suggested in the curriculum.  Serve food! Work with a local vendor to provide a free meal. During COVID-19, it was important to follow directed health measures from the State of Nebraska. From Workshop Participants “I must say today’s webinar was the most useful one of its kind I have ever participated in.” —John K. Hansen, Secretary, Nebraska Farmers Union Foundation “I was able to listen on my phone and access handouts and PowerPoint on computer …. SO SO GRATEFUL!

I hate to use the term perfect—but seems fitting here!! —B. Colleen Babcock, LIMHP, Behavioral Health Therapist (9/2020)
