The West Sussex County Council election, 2013 took place on 2 May 2013, as part of the 2013 United Kingdom local elections. All 71 electoral divisions were up for election, which returned one county councillor each by first-past-the-post voting for a four-year term of office.[1] At this election, the Conservative Party was seeking to retain overall control of the council, and the Liberal Democrats to maintain their position as the main opposition party.

All locally registered electors (British, Irish, Commonwealth and European Union citizens) who were aged 18 or over on Thursday 2 May 2013 were entitled to vote in the local elections. Those who were temporarily away from their ordinary address (for example, away working, on holiday, in student accommodation or in hospital) were also entitled to vote in the local elections,[2] although those who had moved abroad and registered as overseas electors cannot vote in the local elections. It is possible to register to vote at more than one address (such as a university student who had a term-time address and lives at home during holidays) at the discretion of the local Electoral Register Office, but it remains an offence to vote more than once in the same local government election.[3]

  • ✪ Leveraging Partnerships in Planning/Hosting a Communities Talk Event

Transcription

Operator: Good afternoon, everyone, and welcome to Leveraging Partnerships in Planning or Hosting a Communities Talk Webinar. Thank you for joining us. Today's webinar is being recorded. At this time, we would like to turn the webinar over to our moderator, Marion Pierce at SAMHSA. Please go ahead, Marion. Marion Pierce: Welcome, everyone. I'm Marion Pierce, a public health analyst at the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Center for Substance Abuse Prevention, or CSAP. I am the coordinator of SAMHSA's communities talk town hall meetings initiatives and I will serve as the moderator for today's webinar. Our discussion will focus on best practices for engaging partners in a communities talk town hall meeting to prevent underage drinking event and how to achieve positive outcomes based on partnerships. Presenters on today's panel will discuss strategies they’ve used to create and maintain strong partnerships that have helped them achieve their underage and high risk drinking prevention goals. Before we begin, I would like to make a couple of housekeeping announcements. First, please use the chat bot to send us your thoughts and questions throughout each speaker's presentation. There will be a question and answer period following all of the speaker presentations and I will share your questions with our panel at that time. This webinar is being recorded and will be available on SAMHSA's YouTube Page. So if you have colleagues or a coalition partner who wasn’t able to join us, they can access the webinar on demand. Also, we will make a PDF of the slide presentation available after the webinar, so you will have the information and resources that we discuss today at your fingertips. You can share the data, resources, and strategies we discussed with your colleagues and partners. So let me give you a brief introduction on the Communities Talk Initiatives. Since 2006, when the initiative began, more than 10,000 SAMHSA sponsored meetings have been conducted every two years by community-based organizations as well as colleges and universities nationwide. Community Talk events educate the community about consequences of underage drinking and mobilize communities to use evidenced-based approaches, including environmental protection, to reduce underage drinking. Now, while these events focus on underage alcohol use, other topics such as opioids and marijuana can be included in the conversation. Communities Talks Events work. Results show that events mobilize community members to take action based on newly acquired knowledge. From the feedback that we will receive from the 2016 participant survey we saw that 94% committed to sharing information with others; 84% reported that they gained knowledge and 25% planned to begin participating in an underage drinking prevention action group. As you'll learn from today's speakers, Communities Talks Events can help you develop partners and sponsors to develop additional support for your overall underage drinking prevention efforts. Partners increase your organization's capacity by supplying volunteers, promoting events to their audience through organizational websites and other communication platforms, including social media, furnishing meeting space, refreshments and/or office supplies, and providing financial support. On this slide are examples of partners that have participated in communities talks events. We will have a question and answer period after the presentation. Please feel free to use the chat box for any questions you have during the webinar. So let's kick off today's presentation. Our first speaker is Allisyn Marks. Allisyn is a 17 year old senior at Placer High School and a Placer County Youth Commissioner. She is on the leadership board of the commission as the multimedia producer and the co-chair of the prevention subcommittee. Please join us in welcoming Allisyn. Allisyn Marks: Hi, thank you, Marion. So today, I'm going to be talking a little bit about our method when it comes to leveraging partnerships and planning for prevention. So first, I'm going to briefly discuss who we partner with for success. So who we partner with for success all is underneath what we call raisingplacer.org, which is pretty much all the prevention coalitions within our county, working together under a common goal to help protect our youth from using different substances. Under that umbrella, we work with different drug free coalitions such as the coalition for ((inaudible)), the Coalition for Placer Youth, and ourselves, obviously, the Placer County Youth Commission. Another important group of people we love to work with is our local law enforcement. Our local law enforcement is an important collaborator as they're the ones who are often going to be implementing and enforcing the different legislature we pass to protect our youth, and their support is a key component to getting any of our things passed such as a social host organization within our county. If they support our civil host organization, or any sort of the legislature that ((inaudible)) passed is more likely to be passed by different local governments, who is another partner we also work with. So some of the local governments we work with are our (Pawsataney) Board of Supervisors. They were a key component to being our social host ordinance passed throughout the entire Placer County. But we also work with smaller local governments such as the City Councils and their staff to get different things passed and implemented within different towns or cities and different places like that, not just the overarching county. So next, I'm going to be talking about how we work with these different groups through our collaborative projects. So we all come together to work on different projects that impact the youth in several ways and everybody else throughout the community. So one of our biggest projects that we've been successful on and have worked on for many years now is passing different social host ordinances throughout our county and in different townships within our county. The social host ordinance often is misconceived as just for alcohol but it also includes all the different substances, including marijuana and alcohol. And then we also work on a bunch of informative projects, such as we do a sticker shock shown on the left, where the sticker that says warning. For this, we went to our local convenience stores and informed adults that buying alcohol for minors and then redistributing outside of the community source is still illegal. And we put on different other informative events, such as a community forum right there, or town hall meeting. This is kind of our little community outreach project, our community talk event, and this allows parents and law enforcement, and everybody else to ask questions and it involves the community directly. So this allows us to partner with several people within the community, not just law enforcement, or local government, or other drug free coalitions. It allows us to also work with parents and youth to create new ideas and improve upon our prevention method. We also do different informative events for just the youth and this involves everybody. This involves law enforcement, different outside speakers, faith-based organizations, and educators. So on our last year, we have our summer leadership retreat where we brought in a bunch of outside speakers to just educate the youth on how different substances can affect them as they grow, whether it's psychologically, physically, and even legally with bringing up the social host ordinance to them. And so on the right, we had another project where we went to our local high school. It was a drug free coalition and law enforcement collaborative project. And as you can see here, the kids are having a blast driving go-karts, but what they're wearing are goggles that show how it is to drive impaired. This was a fun chance to drive go-karts but also teaches them of impaired driving and different ((inaudible)) to educate them on different effects using substances. This is also another great chance for several partners to come together, whether or not they could be there, because we had several groups like the Coalition for ((inaudible)) Youth, Coalition for Pacer Youth, different law enforcement agencies, and the Pacer Town Youth Commission, we all came together and chipped in some money to purchase these go-karts, and purchase the goggles, which allows us to put on this informative event. So that was another great way to include more partnerships within the community by simply just donating and contributing some financial aid towards purchasing the different go-karts and materials. Another way we are able to collaborate with different groups within our community are by going to different summits and educational opportunities. This allows us to educate or stay educated on different topics and new research data and different things like, any prevention and efforts, like collaborating with people across the country such as when we attended (CADCA), which is shown in the left photo. And here is a photo of different commissioners from the Pacer County Youth Commissioners, different people from other drug free coalitions. We have some people from our faith-based organizations and our educators within this photo, and including Congressman Tom McClintock, who represents our Congressional District. And it is just a bunch of Placer citizens all working together to help protect our youth. And on these trips, we were able to collaborate with different people from different states to see how we can better improve our prevention efforts. And on the right, we have a bunch of young commissioners visiting - or attending the Office of Traffic Safety Summit to learn more and learn from other people within the state and how they're doing their own prevention projects. Okay. So some of the results we see from these different collaborative partnerships and efforts are we always get to educate the public and the youth through our projects. So educating our youth is a huge critical component as they can hopefully spread the information to their friends, their parents, and even grandparents, and so on, teachers, et cetera, just causing a snowball effect and spreading the information of prevention efforts throughout the entire community. We also get to empower new leaders. So through these projects that involve the youth, we get to empower the leaders of tomorrow. And those leaders hopefully will take our message to heart and work to prevent the next generation from using any illegal substances and so on, and they'll, in that next generation, will do the same for the next generation, and so on, and so on. Another result we get to see is sometimes we get to see legislature pass, such as when we pass social host ordinances. So this is the critical part of our prevention plan as it actually makes it illegal for parents and other family members to host underage substance abuse within their own properties. And this also creates new projects for us, while preventing those problems. This allows us to reeducate parents, and reeducate law enforcement, and educator, and youth, and so on, and opens up a bunch of new opportunities for us to keep educating the public. Another result we get to see data. Data is super crucial for getting financial aid and funding for our coalition. So as we see here, from 2013 to 2018, within Pacer County, there was a massive drop in alcohol usage among 11th grade students and a massive drop in cannabis, prescription drugs, binge drinking, and nicotine, although now, as nicotine - as you can see, it wasn’t as great of a drop, it opened up a new project for us to fight against e-cigarettes and other things. And hopefully, in the near future, we'll have a larger decrease in that. So these are just some of the results that can come from different partnerships in prevention and that's all I have for you guys today. And we have more information on our different websites, such as raisingplacer.org and Placer Youth. Marion Pierce: Great. Thank you, Allisyn, for sharing the remarkable results of the Youth Commission's efforts. As a reminder, you can use the chat box for any questions you have during the webinar. Now, I'd like to shift the focus to Dr. Sally Linowski. Dr. Linowski is the Associate Dean of Students for Off Campus Student Life and Community Engagement at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. She creates opportunities for community outreach, fosters student engagement in the community, and maintains relationships with town officials, landlords, residents, and university staff. Dr. Linowski established a campus and community coalition to reduce high risk drinking and founded the University Center for Alcohol and other Drug Abuse Prevention. Welcome, Dr. Linowski. Dr. Sally Linowski: Thank you, Marion. I'm excited to be here today to talk to you about how to engage campus and community partners in planning and executing your town hall meetings. Next slide please. These images are some of me and my work in a naturalistic setting. And the reason I like them is that they show the power of partnership, whether you're participating in a downtown block party, inviting community residents to join your students on campus to learn about mutual areas of concern related to underage and problematic drinking, or networking with colleagues at an international town gown association. What I'll talk with you about today is our campus and community coalition's role in optimizing a community talk town hall meeting in October 2016. Next slide please. Our community's talk event was sponsored by our Campus and Community Coalition, which is a prevention coalition established in 2004 that uses evidence based prevention strategies to reduce alcohol related harm among college students and youth in our community. We have taken a public health approach that engages diverse stakeholders to address the complex social and environmental challenges that contribute to dangerous drinking practices. Next slide please. Partnerships are essential for achieving what researchers refer to as collective impact for social change. A prevention coalition is a social change agent when it effectively manages these and other five factors -- having a common agenda, tracking progress and aiming for continuous improvement, coordinating efforts, building trust among participants, and having a clear organization structure that orchestrates the work and builds sustainability. It's important to note that a town hall meeting can be a one-off event, meaning a way to identify issues or work towards building partnerships. But in our case, because our coalition has credibility and proven success, and is seen as a positive and solution oriented group, we were able to brooch a potentially controversial topic in a creative and visible way. We were able to bring diverse groups of stakeholders together to talk about, in essence, how to reduce underage and heavy drinking, and its effects in a college town, while being business friendly and inviting all ages to downtown for fun social activities that don’t necessarily revolve around drinking or adding more bars to the community. Next slide please. Our town hall was held in October 2016 and it was really a way to identify community assets and envision new ideas on how to achieve a safe and vibrant nightlife in the Amherst area. The town was interested in stimulating the local economy, re-interesting people in coming downtown for arts, entertainment, and leisure while the university and the CCC were interested in making sure underage students and alcohol free options, retailers were responsible in alcohol sales, and the community was not negatively impacted by the bar and party scene. We invited the Chamber of Commerce, the business improvement district, bar and business owners, town government, student leaders, CCC, and university staff to help plan our town hall meeting. The discussion was a blue-sky session where no idea was off the table. We wanted to allow people to dream and envision not what is or what should be but what could be. Our coalition members use their community optimizing and group facilitation skills to not only personally invite diverse stakeholders to participate but also to guide the roundtable discussions. A local business owner with a newly opened co-working space called Amherst Works, in a renovated downtown bank, provided an accessible location for our town hall meeting. This gave him free advertising for his business, brought opinion leaders into the location to experience the feel and vibe of the space, who in turn might recommend it to others to rent space. It also had folks being asked to think outside the box in a space that was clearly an example of thinking outside of the box. It was a new innovative downtown business model. Next slide please. It's important to think about how we do prevention and build coalitions. Good prevention leaders are community organizers. They get to know the culture, the people, the issues, the conflicts, other groups working on similar issues, and they work strategically to understand the currency of potential allies. We listen well. We take notes. We pay attention to what is being said or what is being not said. Finding out what community members value. A town hall meeting is a way to build interest, to hear stories, to gather input, and build relationships. Next slide please. Coalitions and collaboration are all about relationships. Starting a town hall meeting with an activity where folks partner with another person they don’t know or know very well and say their name and what they love about their community is a great example. The next time you could add, "And I care about prevention because." This allows us to identify shared values by learning each other's stories, especially choice points in our life journeys. By allowing people's time and space for sharing what we enjoy doing during our free time, people find commonalities and hear other points of view. So in organizing your town hall meeting, you're organizing relationships and it's not simply a transactional business. We are looking for leaders and champions to join us in long-term relationships of learning, growth, and action to reduce AOD use among our students. So our town hall meeting was clearly a relational tactic. Being part of a national initiative gave us press coverage, visibility, and made us feel supported in our work. Your communities talk event can jumpstart your work too. Next slide. Additionally, to embed prevention into our communities, we have to shift our mindset from that of a leader to that of an organizer. Leadership from the perspective of a learner, meaning one who asks the right questions versus the knower, one who has all the answers. We approach the work with a unique lens, envisioning what could be as opposed to what is. Our town hall meeting was focused on an area of mutual interest. Having a vibrant downtown district for all ages that would be inviting to youth, families, college students, older adults, but that would not become a Bourbon Street type locale with public intoxication, underage drinking, OUI, crime, public urination and other health and public safety issues. Next slide please. So how do you do this? Getting people to partner with our prevention initiatives requires several elements. I spoke about starting with the values. We value health and safety of our young people. We know you do too. We use credible messengers to spread the word. We had student government and peer leaders invite other students. The business improvement district invited the local business owners. A bar owner invited his fellow bar owners and town government invited local residents. We brought tons of enthusiasm and a catchy hook. What is the role of alcohol venues in driving the local economy? Who misses out? How do we engage all citizens in bringing vitality, arts, culture, retail, food, and drink, and more to one of the best college towns in America. We wanted to bring people to the table who could see things differently. This was an essential part of our planning process. These folks helped plan the event and had more buy-in because of it. We had a short panel presentation, very short, ten minutes, featuring the director of our local business improvement district, a town government leader who was active on our CCC, the student government president, a cinema and bar owner, and a dean of students talking about why we care about this issue and why this town hall meeting was important. We then broke up into small groups to brainstorm and boy, did the creativity flow. Next slide please. At the end of the brainstorm, which was sort of a two-hour inclusive experience, groups came together to share their ideas and later, the coalition leaders compiled the notes and shared them with the participants. Here, you can see the major themes that evolved and you can also see our actionable now items. Next slide please. In closing, here are some tips for making your town hall meeting a winner. Have food. People love food. Refreshments can liven up an environment, help people feel relaxed, and allow more informal conversation. Have a clear purpose and plan for your meeting. Create a small working group to plan the nuts and bolts. Location matters. Access to parking, public transportation, walking, and a neutral location can be ideal. So maybe find a space that isn't on your campus or isn't at your police department, but is somewhere new and exciting, and sort of neutral. Be media friendly. Having sound bites, a catchy title, inviting the media to your event, have designated spokespeople at the ready. Take photos to post on your own social media but make sure your lighting and setup is photo friendly. Report back. Our town website, our university websites all posted the final report and we made a glossy copy for distribution that could be distributed at different venues around town and on campus to show the work. And lastly, send thank yous and celebrate your success. Thanks for your time. Marion Pierce: Thank you, Sally. I would like to think of that as a checklist of a winning town hall ((inaudible)) and I will keep that in mind. Also, for our attendees, please keep in mind that if you have questions, please use the chat box and if you want them to be answered by a specific presenter, please let us know that, but please post those questions now so that we can start answering those questions after Becky's presentation. So with that in mind, I'd like to dive into how the Center for Prevention and Counseling Services engages youths. Becky Carlson: Thank you, Marion. Good afternoon, everyone. The Coalition for Healthy and Safe Communities has been a vital force for over 20 years up here in Sussex County, New Jersey, working to reduce underage drinking. It's important though to know that we began our work with ten years of drug free community grant funding and we've sustained our prevention work since then for an additional ten years in a variety of ways. And one of those is with strong membership and another one is with active participation of our dedicated coalition members. In fact, our current coalition chairperson has been a member since the coalition's inception, only missing a handful of meetings in 20 years. And another member has been with us since she was 16 years old where she started as one of our youth group members, and now, (Ayla) has stayed active with us where she went to college, she then interned with us, and now she's a staff member and a mom, and she continues to do prevention work out in our community at the local community college doing a variety of programs up there. But besides snug membership, key to coalition work is really having active participation from al the sectors, meaning that your members are at the meetings, that your members are part of your planning committee, that they're at events, and that they're at programs. And that has really helped us to be at the forefront of our work up here in New Jersey, proudly showing that prevention works in our county. But what I want to really share with you is some information is what's really working for us. Next slide. With our town hall meetings, which are very popular coalition events and a lot of that is really due to youth and youth involvement in the planning and participation at the event. In fact, since 2006, we've been hosting these type of town hall meetings with youth being involved in helping to lead the event. And they're always held in April, which for us is important because it's alcohol awareness month. But our communities talk event worked because we really worked to engage our various sectors, and as a result, the event is really a big deal in our county, and the youth are featured. And as a result, many come to cheer them on and be part of the fun for the evening. We have parents, siblings, caregivers, and grandparents there to support their child. But in addition, what's really exciting to see every year is that besides that, we have those other people that are important in a child's life, such as principals, and teachers, coaches, some of their scout leaders, and even police chiefs and mayors from their communities attend the event. We have state and federal legislators there to support our youth. In fact, our state senator, Steve Oroho, has been a keynote speaker at every single event and he's a proud coalition member committed to our mission. Our local Chief of Police, Mike Richards, is a presenter, and he makes all the arrangements for the event, which is held in our municipal courtroom. Key points we address to parents at our events are to talk early and talk often with the understanding that prevention starts at home. Additionally, we also work to address reducing access to alcohol, which include youth led sticker shock events, responsible beverage trainings for servers and retailers, and looking at local ordinances. Next slide. I would imagine other coalitions would agree it can be difficult to engage the community to attend events and meetings, but our important secret ingredient to our communities talk town hall meetings is the involvement of our youth. We give our local youth a voice and we recognize our talented and community minded young people. So the exciting part of the night is that during our town hall meeting, we have a short interactive presentation about underage drinking, called straight talk. We use a quiz show format where the attendees use clickers to answer the questions in real time and they can see the audience's responses. The youth coalition members do this fun presentation and get attendees to play the game in a competitive nature, which really engages everyone, no matter what age they are. And they allow for Q&A time and many times, the adults are surprised when they find out some of the facts about underage drinking that the youth share with them. Next slide. Another way we engage our community in our alcohol awareness event is with the use of a contest, where we have children from grades four to 12 enter a contest for underage drinking contest for the month with posters, essays, and videos that can be submitted and the winners are then featured in local newspaper, on local radio, on websites, and around the county at local events or town halls, and at our police departments. The schools are really encouraged to get their students involved with the idea that you've got to play to win, to have their students featured in this exciting contest, and we have schools that send in many, many entries every year who are excited about seeing if they can have their school win again with one of their students. Next slide. We utilize fun different themes every year, whether it be elect to be alcohol free during election time, or life is your journey, travel alcohol free, or start talking before they start drinking. With the hundreds of entries that we get, our coalition members serve as judges to pick the winners. Then at the town hall meeting, the winners and their families are invited along with all the other supporting adults in that child's life, where they're honored for their work. Our senator is proud to be there and he presents citations and a small gift to the winners and it really doesn’t get old seeing the proud parents and grandparents taking photos of their children with all the different speakers at the end of the evening because they're so proud of their children. Next slide. Our local radio station allows the winners to come in and record their PSAs, which you can see from the slide the kids are very excited to be a part of that. All of these PSAs are played throughout all of our different radio stations throughout the country during April's alcohol Awareness Month. And again, the day of the taping is really exciting, not only for the youth that participate but the families because they're so honored and thrilled to be recording their own messages that are going to be played live on the radio for each of them to hear in their community. Next slide. Communities Talk is about community engagement and any time we can get youth to attend our coalition meetings that's where you see the magic of youth involvement. Their ideas, their messages, their input, it's all inspiring and it really helps to motivate the adults in our coalition. I know we all heard Allisyn earlier that it was exciting to hear the different things she was doing in her community. Sometimes in order to get youth involved, it means adjusting a meeting to take place after school, at the school, or in the evenings but it is really worth the effort. And having fun refreshments like tacos in a bag or ice cream sundaes can add to the fund when you have youth involved. And lastly, by allowing youth to have a voice and letting them take a lead, it will allow you to each see the magic happen in your community. Next slide. An important lesson I learned early in my prevention work was don't reinvent the wheel. There's so many resources out there for all of our coalitions and prevention organizations to utilize. First, there's SAMHSA's and its many incredible initiatives with a variety of tools that are so well thought out and easy to utilize, such as Talk, They Hear You, Communities Talk, National Drug Fact Week, National Prevention Week. All of these initiatives feature underage drinking resources and tools and make it so easy to utilize and personalize in your catalyst. And there's other great resources too. Parents who host lost the most is a popular one out of the prevention action alliance in Ohio and has many great tools that you can utilize and personalize. Parents Empowered is a campaign out of Utah that’s statewide that has incredibly engaging ideas that people can utilize. And I know for me, over the years, sharing with other coalitions is so important. Everybody is really always happy to share with you as we are to share with them. It's really just a matter of finding the coalition and asking them. And it's important when you do that to personalize the message to fit your needs in your community because we're each different. Also, we all know that utilizing social media to spread your message and help engage your community is really key. Next slide. I encourage you to check out our website and our Facebook to see more about what we're doing with underage drinking prevention. And as I said before, outreach around the country and find out what other coalitions and other organizations are doing. Because there's so many new ideas and strategies that you can find to fit your prevention needs. And as I've been telling you throughout my part of this presentation, engaging youth to use their passion through creativity to spread your prevention message for further and greater impact will really help your prevention work down the line. And I want to say we truly thank SAMHSA for providing the stipends that they’ve been doing. It's helped our coalition present great town hall meetings where we've been working to address underage drinking. This national movement is really helping to move the needle across the country, reducing youth use of alcohol. Best wishes to everyone for a successful and engaging communities talk town hall meeting. Thank you. Marion Pierce: And thank you, Becky, for sharing those valuable insights. I'm sure other communities will be hosting their meetings in April during alcohol awareness month and it will be interesting to hear how the commission coordinated their communities talk town hall meeting with that national observance. Now, we will have a time for a few questions from the audience. As we mentioned before, please use the chat feature to share your questions with us. I will start off with a question for hopefully all of the panelists can respond to this and it's basically what strategies have you found most effective when starting the initial process of recruiting partners? So how do you select, engage, and retain your partners? Becky Carlson: This is Becky. I think it's really important to outreach to all the different sectors and ask people. Many times, people don’t get involved because they don’t know what's going on or they don’t know that you have a coalition that's out there. So really working within, for example, we've really done a lot of work outreaching to clergy and we work strongly, as Allisyn indicated, with our law enforcement. So it's really reaching out into the community and assessing who is out there and working to build that capacity to get people involved. Dr. Sally Linowski: Hi, this is Sally. I would agree with Becky in that thinking about different people who would be interested in partnering and also having your coalition members, they'll be in touch with other people or other initiatives. Usually, they're pretty engaged in their communities. Have them think about who they might invite to attend. And I think in terms of retaining members, sometimes we can struggle to retain members when really their time is done. Either their job has changed, their interest has changed, or they're just not as engaged in the coalition. And I think in addition to trying to retain our members, sometimes it's giving them permission to step back and to turn the table over to someone else who maybe has some new energy. Because I think that’s often important as well is to allow people to leave the coalition. Maybe they'll come back at some point or maybe they'll get involved in a different way. Becky Carlson: This is Becky. Another idea too, I think it's important to remember, not everybody can make meetings. Sometimes I think we judge our popularity with the coalition by who comes - how many people are coming to a meeting. But not everybody can attend, so I think it's important to make sure whether however you communicate, through Instagram, or texting, or email, however it is that you communicate with your coalition members to keep them abreast of what's going on. Because sometimes they can't come to the meeting but yet, they'll help you find a location or they'll connect you with a school. There's so many different things that people can do out in the community that it doesn’t necessarily mean if they don’t come to the meeting that they're not active and they can't participate. Allisyn Marks: Hi, so one of our ways we really get a lot of people to attend is we do a huge recruitment effort before the end of each school year to try to recruit a new generation of youth. And how we retain our high membership rates is we constantly are having events for them to attend. So every term, we have two to three events and we have meetings at least twice a month. So it really engages the youth who participate within our program. We also do a huge outreach through social media. As I'm the multimedia producer for our Youth Commission, I'm constantly just putting in the effort to make sure I reach enough of the youth within our county. Marion Pierce: Great. Thanks all. Next question. So what strategies were implemented to create sustainable win-win opportunities for all of your stakeholders? Becky Carlson: I think it's important to know -- this is Becky -- to know what your different stakeholders interests are and why they're there at the table. So if it's a business owner, they might be there because they care about kids, they care about their community, but they also have a business. So if you can get them involved, we have a local business that’s very big in the community. It's a ski place in the winter and a water park in the summer. And having them at the table is important because sometimes they'll host different meetings, they'll host different events, and it gets people up to them. But it also gets our members out to have some fun. Dr. Sally Linowski: Sometimes also leading a meeting with a prompt, such as I'm so and so and I care about prevention because or I'm so and so and I represent X agency, and a burning issue for us right now that relates to this topic is whatever that may be. So that it has people actually reflect on what their interests are and what's sort of on the front burner for them at that moment and also can be shared with the larger group to keep the momentum going, and potentially to find areas of intersection. Marion Pierce: Great. Sally, I'll toss this question out to you. What has been your greatest challenges or challenges to prevention partnership - I always think about prevention ((inaudible)) partnerships and how have you addressed those challenges? Dr. Sally Linowski: Well, Marion, that's a great question. I think there are challenges that pop up in sometimes really direct ways in your face and then there are challenges that are sort of longer-term. I would say a pretty consistent challenge that we've had is changes in leadership, and by that, I mean changes in police chiefs, either at the university or in the town, changes in a vice-chancellor for student affairs, changes in the chancellor, changes in forms of town government. So whenever sort of that key leadership position or positions changes, there can be a little bit of a struggle in sort of not necessarily communicating what your coalition and your prevention work is about. But getting on that person's agenda and making sure that in a very brief way, because their time is busy, you can let them know that this group is here, they're effective, they're supportive, and not to worry. So I would say that has been - our coalition has been in place almost as long as Becky's, I guess, and that we've had so many changes in leadership and we've sometimes stumbled a little bit because we haven't quite known how to get the attention of that particular leader. So Becky or Allisyn, do you have anything else to add to Sally's comments? Dr. Sally Linowski: I just want to add that I think that one of the things that always helps me and helps us when we're having any struggles or we're working out in the community is one thing we always remember that our members are parents, they're grandparents, they're aunts, they're uncles, they're sisters, they're brothers, they're neighbors with kids, they're coaches. They do so many different things in their community and the thing that we all have, our bottom line, we all have a bottom line of healthy kids, healthy communities. Nobody can argue with that. And by providing your members with different tools that they can utilize at their place of work, their house of worship, and any organization they belong to, whether it be materials, whether it be a lunch and learn that you can help them turnkey that they could do out there. Sharing what we have because we are the experts in this field and we've got the information, and thanks to SAMHSA and other organizations, we've got so much that can help us out there. And I think remembering that with our members who are out their struggling in their community, and sharing what we've got, and remembering we all have the same bottom line. Allisyn Marks: Yes, I agree with both of them. Really just distributing the information and the resources and tools we have is a key component to the whole prevention effort. Marion Pierce: Great. So a question that I'm often asked and I am going to use language from the communities talk FAQs, it is about how to use the SAMHSA grant for events. The stipend is provided to help to defray the cost of planning and holding an event. Organizations may use the stipend to cover costs such as facilities rental, printing, promotion, or other expenditures as deemed appropriate by the organization. The organizations may not use the stipend to pay for food and beverages, entertainment, door prizes, discounts, incentives, giveaways, promotional products such as t-shirts, baseball caps, coffee mugs, or anything not specifically related to planning and conducting town hall meetings on underage drinking prevention. And again, if you want to see that language again, it is on the Communities Talk website under the frequently asked questions. Now, we'll follow-up with a question for the group. How do you evaluate your communities talk events and how do you measure your success? Becky Carlson: For ours, we always have a survey that we do an evaluation at the end of it and we encourage our families and any of our participants there to complete that. And how we measure that, some of the questions that we ask, can we change behaviors, have they learned new information, is there a takeaway that people have that they can go home with or back into their community with. So that's really important to remember any time you do an event that you want to always do some type of an evaluation. And one other way when we use the clickers, we're able to do part of that on the clickers and get a lot of good information there too as we - at the end of it, we can utilize that as another way to evaluate our audience. (Crosstalk) Allisyn Marks: (Alli) here. One way we evaluate our town halls is not only but physical attendance, but we also Facebook live stream and then we'll able to look at those analytics later on and see who's viewed it, how many people have viewed it, and even how many people have shared it with other people. So that's a great way for us to also analyze how impactful our community town hall events were. Marion Pierce: How do partners participate in the evaluation? Dr. Sally Linowski: This is Sally. In the case of our town hall meeting, we ask people for feedback in the form of a survey at the end of the town hall meeting, what worked, what didn’t work, what new ideas do they have, and then would they be interested in future coalition events. So that was a way of sort of gauging interest. Although we didn’t expect that we would recruit new members, we wanted to sort of get some information that could help inform some other working groups that were happening in the town and on the campus. So part of our work was to make a really nice glossy report that then could be shared with other agencies and organizations to inform their work. So part of our evaluation was with them, was this helpful and have you implemented any of these strategies. Becky Carlson: Another tool, too, that people can utilize is survey monkeys because after the fact of you've got people's emails, you can follow-up with them. And also with your coalition doing some kind of a focus group, particularly with the youth that are involved, because that will really help to get some good information from what they felt worked and what didn’t work, and what messages were taken away and if there was anything where you missed the work. Marion Pierce: Allisyn, I would like to start this question out with you and others if they have feedback. Do any of the youth commissioners work directly with partners? Allisyn Marks: Yes, so all of our youth commissioners usually work directly with our partners, especially those within the prevention subcommittee. So just the other week, actually, for an example, our entire prevention subcommittee met with the town planner of (Lumus), which is a town we're trying to pass a social host ordinance in and we're constantly working on collaborative progress directly, just the youth, with our other drug free coalitions and with our educators and our faith-based organizations, whether it's putting on different educational events like the youth leadership retreat, or even just attending different summits, like when we attended (CADCA) last year, it was me and one other youth commissioner going with different people throughout the partnerships throughout our community, all attending the SAMHSA and (CADCA) convention to learn more on how to be better drug free coalitions and work for funding. So yes, we all directly work with our partnerships. Marion Pierce: Great. We have about ten minutes left. I have one other question but if you have a burning question, please put that in the chat pod and we will try to get to it. Sally, do you find that establishments that don’t serve alcohol, like the cinema, to be more receptive to partnering? Dr. Sally Linowski: That's a great question. I would say yes and no. I think even establishments that do serve alcohol have times when their alcohol sales are not the primary part of their business and they're interested in getting people into their businesses, into their restaurants. So typically during the daytime or when students are away, for example, so that those places are largely empty in the evening, they may be more open. But absolutely, places that - businesses that do not serve alcohol have a very vested interest in having entertainment and things available for people that aren't drinking or maybe are going drinking later. So I think it goes both ways, yes. Marion Pierce: Great. This follow-up question. Sally, you touched upon this but the question I have is do you have successful ways to stay engaged and remain in touch with your partners after a Communities Talk Event has ended? Dr. Sally Linowski: Yes, we do have pretty successful ways to stay involved, in large part because the way we do our work is networking. So for example, our town government leader is in touch with many of the community residents because they attend town hall meetings and things like that. The business owners are in touch with one another because they have their regular monthly meetings and things. Sometimes, sending out email announcements, or inviting people to events, or featuring things in your social media can just help keep the communication flowing. But I think particularly if you're in a smaller town or region, you simply just bump into people, whether it's at the grocery store or when you're hiking, or you're watching your kid's soccer game or something. So sometimes just having those relationships can keep you connected to one another and allow you to sort of pursue opportunities. Marion Pierce: Okay. So also, I would like to urge our attendees to read our success stories because a lot of those success stories have questions about planning and hosting that can be useful to you as well so that you're not reinventing the wheel and hopefully you will have a few aha moments as you read through them. They're on the communities talk website, So we have -- so thanks for all of those questions. They were quite thought provoking. Thanks to our distinguished speakers. I hope you have already registered to host a communities talk event in 2019. If you have not, you can request registration information from info@stopalcoholabuse.net to assist as we talk about the ((inaudible)) to assist in the planning and hosting an event. SAMHSA is providing $750 stipends to the first 1,000 organizations to register. So please register soon. I hope that our time this afternoon has inspired fresh and actionable ideas for engaging partners in your next communities talk event. I invite you to visit the communities talk website at www.stopalcoholabuse.gov/townhallmeetings and join the underage drinking prevention conversation online by using #communitiestalk and including the hashtag in your post. Again, thank you for your time and being a part of this conversation. Have a great afternoon. Operator: And this does conclude today's conference call. Thank you all for your participation. You may now disconnect.

Summary

The Conservative Party, who have controlled control of the Council since 1997, retained control with a majority of 10 seats, a loss of three seats compared to the 2009 result.[4] The Conservative Party also retained Imberdown which had been gained due to a defection from the Liberal Democrats.[5]

The United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) won 10 seats to become the official opposition on the council, a net gain of 8 seats. In the intervening period since the last election UKIP gained two seats by defection from the Conservatives, Kingston Buci and Worthing West, UKIP failed to retain either seat.[6][7] The Liberal Democrats lost 11 seats and gained 1 seat, leaving them with a total of 8 seats. Labour gained 4 seats from the Conservatives, but lost Haywards Heath Town to the Conservative, which Labour had gained by defection from the Liberal Democrats.[5][8] Labour won a total of 6 seats, all in the Borough of Crawley.

Of the parties that did not gain any representation on the Council. only the Green Party contested more than one electoral division. The Green Party lost its only county councillor, who had defected from the Liberal Democrats.[5][9]

An independent gained Midhurst division from the Conservatives.[10] The Conservative candidate for the Division of Midhurst was forced to resign from the Conservative Party, but did so after the close of nomination and date to withdraw nominations, meaning their name remained on the ballot paper. This was due to comments made regarding the potential admissions policy of a proposed new boarding school in West Sussex.[11]
