Involvement Opportunity: SW Practice with Organizations and Communities

Posted By Mary Ann Priester, Monday, October 3, 2016

Dear SCANPO members,

My name is Mary Ann Priester and I am a graduate assistant for the Social Work Practice with Organizations and Communities course at the University of South Carolina. I am emailing you on behalf of Dr. Kirk Foster.

The College of Social Work at the University of South Carolina invites community-oriented organizations to partner with it in service-learning. In Social Work Practice with Organizations and Communities, student groups will work with community-oriented organizations to address a specific question of concern to the organization. The students will apply the skills and knowledge learned in the classroom along with gaining new skills and knowledge working alongside trusted partners, while you will receive assistance on a project. Deliverables from this process may assist organizations in receiving grant funding, lead to program development/redevelopment, mapping community assets, strengthen community cohesion, and increase cooperation between nonprofits and schools, just to name a few.

The application process is easy – just click the Survey Monkey link and answer a few short questions. The RFP is attached should you want to complete the questions off-line then copy and paste. Each accepted project will be paired with a group of 5 students for the duration of the spring semester and overseen by a faculty member. The attached project overview provides greater details.

Click here to apply: www.surveymonkey.com/r/2017sowk732

Please contact Dr. Kirk Foster (kfoster@sc.edu or 803-777-2377) with any questions. Please apply soon because applications are due by October 21st!

Gaylord & Dorothy Donnelley Foundation Call for Artists to Complete Survey on Affordable Live/ Work Space Needs

Posted By SCANPO, Friday, September 16, 2016

The Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation has invited Artspace, the nation’s leading non-profit developers for the arts, to administer an online survey to further assess the potential success of an affordable multi-use facility in the Charleston region beginning September 14, 2016.

The survey may be found on this website or on Facebook. This is the second step in a feasibility process which began with a visit by Artspace in February 2016.

The survey will provide Artspace with anonymous statistical information including: artist housing needs, affordability ranges, artist studio-only needs, location preferences, design requirements based on household sizes and arts disciplines, and arts organization space needs.

The survey will be available online from September 14, 2016 to November 14, 2016. All artists, arts organization administrators, and creative business owners of all disciplines are encouraged to complete the survey regardless of their personal needs or interest in the project.

The public is invited to attend a survey launch event on September 14, 2016 at 6 p.m. at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at 161 Calhoun Street in Charleston. Artspace consultants will present their findings from the feasibility study and give details on the market survey. Participants will also have the opportunity to complete the survey onsite.

A group of local stakeholders have been convened to work with GDDF and Artspace including: Chris Fraser, Avison Young Ray Huff, Clemson Architecture Center Kyle Lahm, City of North Charleston, Cultural Arts Department Michelle Mapp, SC Community Loan Fund Bill Medich, South State Bank Adam Parker, Post & Courier Mark Sloan, Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art Nancye Starnes, Kite Foundation Scott Watson, City of Charleston, Office of Cultural Affairs.

Those who have questions about the Charleston regional survey, please contact Kerri Forrest at kerri@gddf.org or Clover Morell at clover@gddf.org.

CVSC Announces New Executive Director

Posted By SCANPO, Friday, September 9, 2016

We are pleased to share that the Conservation Voters of South Carolina recently announced John Tynan as their new executive director! Ann Timberland, the current director, shared the news in the following letter: 

When I took on the task of leading CVSC and “building a bipartisan majority for conservation” in 2003, we had a budget under $60,000 and the challenges ahead of us were great.

Over the last 13 years, I have worked with dedicated board members, exceptional staff, and a community of talented professionals and volunteers. Together, we have grown CVSC to where it is thriving and stronger than ever.

Our annual budget surpassed $600,000 this year – a ten-fold increase. Average scores on our Conservation Scorecards more than doubled from 41% in 2004 to 87% in 2016. CVSC has endorsed Republicans and Democrats in every election since 2003 with a success rate over 70% - including the defeat of three low scoring incumbents in 2016. We have formalized collaboration within the conservation community and raised our collective voices through the South Carolina Conservation Coalition.

Through this work, Conservation Voters has become a force in both the State House and in elections across the state. With these successes in mind, I believe that the time is right for CVSC to grow and expand under new leadership, and I notified the CVSC Board of my resignation earlier this summer.

I am pleased to announce that John Tynan will assume the position of Executive Director in mid-October. John joined our team in February as Political Director and together we launched a sophisticated voter engagement strategy, doubled our expenditures over past cycles and spent more than $145,000 to support conservation minded candidates.

With a background that includes non-profit conservation work, election to local office, and service as a government employee, John has the right set of skills and passion to expand CVSC’s impact. Having hired John and worked alongside him for the last six months as we expanded our political efforts, I can think of no better person to lead this organization into its next phase.

I look forward to working with John and the CVSC team through the end of the year while I consider new career challenges. Post-transition, I will remain a strong supporter of CVSC’s work and encourage you to do the same.

I will be forever grateful for the amazing friendships formed within the conservation community and with elected leaders. Thank you for your encouragement and for your support for Conservation Voters. Together we will continue to protect the South Carolina we love.

Best, 

Ann Timberlake

Executive Director, CVSC
