The Community Outreach Liaison Program was established in 2000 to enhance communication between NSEDC and its member communities. NSEDC has a designated Community Outreach Liaison (Liaison) position in thirteen of NSEDC’s fifteen member communities, with offices in Unalakleet and Nome as resources for the two remaining member communities.
As part-time employees, Liaisons convey information about NSEDC, the availability of specific NSEDC programs to residents, and help facilitate participation in the Education, Employment and Training (EET) Program. The Liaisons also attend community meetings such as those held by the City Council, IRA, or village corporation, in order to keep informed about issues in the community and provide information to the community about NSEDC.
The Liaisons prepare written activity reports for the Community Development Coordinator (CDC) on a monthly basis describing the outreach activities and reporting on current events and issues in the community. Liaisons also provide special verbal or written reports to the CDC for projects sponsored by NSEDC and for publications such as the NSEDC newsletter, annual report, web site and other distribution materials.
