Ensuring All Viewpoints Are Heard, All Issues Discussed

The Consortium brings all viewpoints to the table and addresses quality of life issues.

It has led to successful collaborations and an overall sense of accomplishment among many diverse organizations and residents in the area. The success lies in the coordination of efforts of all contributors to the community, including schools, churches, and businesses.

In 1991, Beech Interplex invited as many community and agency representatives in the area as could be found to participate in a meeting to discuss the mission of Beech and to foster collaboration among Cecil B. Moore stakeholders.

Since that initial meeting, there have been 2-3 every year with 60-70 people from over 50 organizations attending. Along with catered lunches and networking, the on-going interrelationship building between agencies to improve the community has been the true meaning of the Consortium.
