    Coastal management is the term used by communities and organizations striving to keep the nations coasts safe from storms, rich in natural resources, and economically strong. The national lead for these efforts is the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations Office for Coastal Management, an organization devoted to partnerships, science, and good policy. This agency, housed within the National Ocean Service, oversees major initiatives that include the National Coastal Zone Management Program, Coral Reef Conservation Program, Digital Coast, and National Estuarine Research Reserve System.

  • Planning and Facilitating Collaborative Meetings

    Acknowledgments This workshop was developed for National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) extension and education professionals by the NOAA Office for Coastal Management, with input and assistance from the NOAA National Sea Grant Office and the NOAA Estuarine Reserves Division. The NOAA Office for Coastal Management design team for this course included the following:

    Ann Weaver Paige Gill Jan Kucklick Sacheen Tavares-Leighton Marian Hanisko Stephanie Kavanaugh Tricia Ryan

    The contents were derived from many facilitation, public policy, conflict management, and meeting management resources. Many thanks to Kristy Ellenberg and Chris Sieverdes, formerly of the Clemson University Cooperative Extension Service, for their assistance, training, and use of materials from the Public Issues Management School manual. Thanks to Laura Cantral for her contribution to the materials in our Designing and Conducting a Collaborative Process course, which were also used for some portions of this workshop. Many portions of this workshop have been modified from the training of Ingrid Bens and her book Facilitating with Ease, which has proven to be a truly invaluable resource.

    Our sincerest thanks and appreciation goes to each of these people for sharing their time, materials, knowledge, and skillsthank you.

    Trainers Ann Weaver (Ann.Weaver@noaa.gov) is a program and training specialist at NOAAs Office for Coastal Management. Her responsibilities include conducting trainings that include Planning and Facilitating Collaborative Meetings, Project Design and Evaluation, and Planning for Meaningful Evaluation. Weaver was certified as a professional facilitator by the International Association of Facilitators in April 2011. Before coming to the Office for Coastal Management, she worked as the coastal training program coordinator at the Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve, where she coordinated the completion of a market analysis and needs assessment for the program. Weaver has extensive experience as a trainer and facilitator in the public and private sectors. As an industrial engineer in a manufacturing venue, she focused on process skills. She used her expertise in processes to teach those skills to other engineers and manufacturing associates as the continuous improvement coordinator. This led her to become a corporate-certified learning specialist and instructional designer, where she conducted needs assessments, designed and facilitated courses, and coached multifunctional project groups through a six sigma problem solving process. When she completed her masters degree, she left the private sector to apply her training skills and education to resource management. Weaver obtained her bachelors degree in industrial engineering from the University of Washington, and a bachelors and masters degree in biology from Florida Atlantic University. Marian Hanisko (Marian.Hanisko@noaa.gov) joined the NOAA Office for Coastal Management in 2010 as a coastal management specialist with The Baldwin Group. In this position, she teaches Planning and Facilitating Collaborative Meetings and works with federal, state, and local partners to address community resilience and climate change adaptation planning issues. Hanisko has over ten years of experience in coastal management and policy with a special emphasis in workshop design, meeting planning, and facilitation. Previously, she served as the coastal training program coordinator at the Grand Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve in Moss Point, Mississippi, where she designed and hosted training workshops for natural resource managers and local elected officials. Hanisko holds a master of science in environmental studies from the University of Charleston and a bachelor of science in biology from Samford University. Jan Kucklick (Jan.Kucklick@noaa.gov) joined the NOAA Office for Coastal Management in June 1997 as a coastal management specialist, and her courses include Planning and Facilitating Collaborative Meetings. Kucklick has been working in the field of coastal and marine science since 1989. She has extensive experience in facilitation and conference and meeting coordination and management, and while at the Office for Coastal Management, has served as an outreach manager, program coordinator, and operational manager. Before joining the office, she worked in the area of oil spill response, damage assessment, and contingency planning. Kucklick holds a master of science in marine biology from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and a bachelor of science in biology from the College of William and Mary.

    Gwen Shaughnessy (Gwen.Shaughnessy@noaa.gov) joined the NOAA Office for Coastal Management in February 2011 as a climate adaptation specialist. In this position, Shaughnessy helps NOAA build capacity that enables local communities to better understand the risks, strategies, and choices for how to adapt to the impacts of hazards and a changing climate. Previously, Shaughnessy worked for four years as a coastal hazards and climate change specialist for the Maryland Chesapeake and Coastal Program. From 2007 to 2008, she helped staff the Adaptation and Response Working Group for the Maryland Commission on Climate Change and contributed to Marylands Climate Action Plan. Her responsibilities also included development of the CoastSmart Communities Initiative, a program designed to improve community resilience in the face of coastal hazards and climate change. Shaughnessy holds a bachelor of science degree in marine biology from California State University at Long Beach and a masters degree in marine science from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington.
