Generating ideas, connections, and action

LLC Webinar | Practice: Innovative Network Governance and Structures

December 6, 2017

10:00am Pacific | 1:00pm Eastern


Last month June Holley presented on the importance of Network Governance and Structures. We were introduced to a plethora of examples, but did not have much time to dig into some of the models. Join us on December 6th for 90 minutes of hands-on virtual practice where you will be able to talk and get ideas from other networks. June with be accompanied by Tracy Kunkler of Circle Forward Partners and Steve Waddell, who will share some resources about governance models and processes for networks.

As part of registration you will take a short survey so we can all see the range of network governance models in the room,  the challenges you are facing and interest in new models. During the session we will  break up into groups based on topics you generate where you will have a chance to share with others.

Please plug in your webcams and have earphones ready to roll up your sleeves and practice.



June Holley has been weaving economic and community networks for more than 25 years. In 1981 she discovered complexity science and became intrigued with the process of transformation. How could communities change in ways that would make them good places for everyone?

With others in Appalachian Ohio, she catalyzed cascades of experimentation, observing and documenting the dynamics that enabled many hundreds of people to start and then expand businesses. With these entrepreneurs, she mobilized dozens of area organizations to collaborate, self-organize and create an environment that would help these businesses innovate and work together.


Tracy Kunkler is a professional facilitator, consultant, and co-founder of Circle Forward, a nexus of frameworks and approaches to collaborative governance and decision-making.  With years of community development experience, she is responding to her clients’ needs for more adaptive ways of governing how they work together, make decisions, create inclusion, empower leadership, and distribute power – to bring about more effective and equitable results in large scale systems change.
