Some very exciting new collaborative efforts are underway in our community from which we can gain the knowledge to effectuate positive change for the central Illinois area.

Working with consultants to bring in new ideas, and make decisions based on knowledge, the following five noteworthy collaborative efforts are examples of how we should do business in the area. We should think regionally, not parochially; and we should be inclusive and work together, marshalling our forces instead of duplicating efforts.

By working together, each of the entities and people involved in these efforts has greatly increased the chance of success and helped move forward projects, which can brighten the future of our region. As a community, increased collaboration and a focus on regional thinking is the direction toward which we must continue to head. IBI
