As the importance of drawing upon community assets to sustain SRTS programs continues to grow, thinking beyond the "usual suspects" as partners is more important than ever. In this sixty minute program, we will highlight partner ideas from four outstanding programs that provide wonderful examples of building strong ties with other community organizations.
2012 Oberstar SRTS Award recipient program leader Kathryn Garvey with the Chagrin Falls, Ohio, SRTS Program will provide specific examples of unique local partners that have been pivotal to their achievements, including a local historical society and a community theater. Nancy Pullen-Seufert with the National Center for Safe Routes to School will offer additional innovative ideas from three SRTS programs that received special recognition as part of this year's Oberstar Award selection process.
There is no better way to learn than from example, so please join us to learn from the success of these four outstanding programs.

Time: 1-2 p.m. ET
