The Carolinian Canada Coalition is a unique organization in this region, filling the gap between national and local programs. As the zone is increasingly recognized as a priority for conservation, taking the time to build our core capacity is a natural evolution in the history of this organization. It is a response to increased participation of our members and partners.
The Coalition has worked under a variety of organizational structures in the past reflecting its history as a collaborative. Recently, our management committee and allies have recognized a strong need for Carolinian Canada Coalition to become incorporated as a registered charity in order to raise funds independently and manage key programs. To support an incorporated structure, a solid organizational foundation is needed to carry out major programs, provide accountability and expand to new program areas as needed. Feedback on this move from partner organizations is positive, as they recognize and support the continuation of a strong Coalition.
The Coalition is concurrently developing comprehensive strategic plan. This document is crucial to map out how our organization fits into and can best support the wider goals of the conservation community.
Your participation as a member, stakeholder or interested resident of Carolinian Canada is encouraged as we grow together towards a greener future.
