Brendan Prusik, a UNH Cooperative Extension natural resources field specialist in Coos County, is one of the participants in the inaugural class of the Community Practitioners Network (CPN).

The network is funded by the Neil and Louise Tillotson Fund of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. CPN is a two-year leadership program offered at no charge to participants designed to build and strengthen leadership skills among community and economic development professionals from Coos County and surrounding communities in the United States and Canada.

Participants will engage in a mix of face-to-face and virtual meetings with the first year devoted to building participants' leadership skills and capacity, and the second year to strengthening social, professional and community networks across the region and implementation of participant-led community project(s). Participants were selected through a competitive application process.

The Neil and Louise Tillotson Fund was established in 2006 at the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation to serve as a catalyst for the region to move toward sustainable community and economic development in Coos County and surrounding communities.
