This session will combine a panel presentation with interactive discussion and worksheets to assist you in developing an outline of first steps to take in anticipation of funding cuts, navigating staff issues that inevitably arise when funding cuts are threatened in union and non-union offices, and planning for action when those cutbacks actually occur. We'll provide worksheets for developing a decision making tree. One panel member will discuss "Doing Less with Less" and will cover her experiences in cutting back on services while keeping the program as strong and viable as possible. Another panel member will discuss the preparation for and steps taken when facing the worst possible scenario of a complete loss of all LSC funding and how his program survived and thrived in that time. Another panel member will discuss the unique challenges that rural programs with little to no support on a state level can handle the budgetary issues.
