THE new way of working and communicating isn't stopping a Leeton organisation from ticking off its goals.
Last week, Leeton Connect held a virtual workshop via Zoom after current restrictions on public gatherings forced its original workshop to be postponed.
Instead, the event was held for groups to log into remotely from the comfort of their own home or office.
The idea behind the meeting was to plan Leeton's Investing in Rural Community Futures (IRCF) community roadmap.
Presentations from the relevant stakeholders and authorities were made, as well as a recap on all the information gathered at the roadshows, community meetings and survey forms, which have set the scene for the Leeton community to roadmap their future.
The participants were then invited to nominate a session they would like to go to brainstorm and start building the roadmap.
The four areas were titled "people", "strategy", "sector efficiencies" and "systems and structures".
Leeton Connect chairman Sue Gavel said the four groups discussed their goals and priorities and came back with plans to present to the other groups.
"Engagement at each session was fantastic and an array of plans was put forward and eagerly endorsed by everyone," she said.
"About 30 attended the webinar.
"It was very difficult for everyone to attend due to work commitments or lack of online facilities, but there will be further opportunities for community engagement If people were unable to attend this workshop."
The questions and project activity worksheets will be sent out to all the shire's not-for-profits on the database for further input and ideas.
A roadmap forward will then be drafted and another virtual workshop held for feedback.
