Organizational Structure


The Greater Carlisle Project (GCP) is coordinated by a Steering Committee that develops, implements and monitors a strategic plan for achieving the GCP vision. An Idea Team acts as an incubator and catalyst to move ideas from discussion to action, and as a knowledge hub for sharing information and lessons from GCP projects. Community members and organizations are encouraged to bring ideas to the Idea Team for projects that require, or would benefit from, collaboration with GCP members. Action Teams will be created to assist organizations to implement approved projects and act as liaisons between the projects and the Greater Carlisle Project.
