Things we may do to fulfill our objectives:

Things our collaboration area needs to deliver our objectives?

(e.g. Partnerships, in-kind support, staff support)

How will we know we are on the right track?

How will others know what we are doing in & out of ESIP?

Cross-collaboration area connections
