Be a partner

In choosing a partner, always choose the optimist.

—Tony Lema

Congratulations! If you have got this far then you have hopefully created a positive impact in your community.

There’s an old saying: “After all is said and done, generally more gets said than gets done.” You’ve proved that saying wrong! Take a bow.

But as the name says, CLIP is about building community. And that is why we’d like to invite you to become a part of the CLIP community. By seeing ourselves as a wider community of change agents we can continue to make positive things happen in our communities.

We’ve used links and case studies throughout this Action Field Guide. Now, we’d like to hear your story. Maybe you’d like to share it as a case study for others coming behind you. Let’s learn from each other, pass on our learnings and use that knowledge to make others stronger.

We know that the CLIP Process will benefit by continuous improvement so we’d also welcome your feedback on what worked and what didn’t. Action Learning is about learning by doing, so your experience of the doing can help us build a better process.

Please reach out to us at CLIP and to the wider group of Community Led Impact Partners with your stories and feedback. Contact us at partner@clipguide.net.

Finally, a word of thanks to OUR partners. This guide would not exist without our own community of partners and contributors. Thank you to Skills Tasmania for your faith in this process. Thanks to the Launceston Chamber of Commerce for auspicing and supporting this project. Thanks to Peter Murden, the guru and life-time learner in place-based change. Thanks to the CLIP Action Team, who advised, wrote, edited and experimented. Thanks to Made Open for developing the website and materials. Thanks also to DevDesign for the striking logo design, and finally many thanks to the Connected Launceston Action Team, who were the real-world laboratory for the CLIP Process.
