Sherrie Smith, Outreach and Marketing Supervisor for the Community Energy Project (CEP), delivered an excellent presentation based on CEP's experiences about preparing organizations for successful outreach and creating an outreach plan. Approximately 70 people from Multnomah County as well as public and non-profit entities throughout the metropolitan area attended the workshop. CEP's philosophy is that people are the experts of their own experience. In addition to outlining a framework for creating a successful outreach plan, Sherrie shared CEP's lessons learned and practices and tools for empowering people using education and information.

About Community Energy Project:
CEP empowers people to maintain healthier, more livable homes, control their utility costs, and conserve natural resources. We do this through education, hands-on training, and distribution of weatherization, water conservation, and lead poisoning prevention materials. We also provide direct weatherization and water conservation services to seniors and people with disabilities. Further, services are designed to ensure that people with low-incomes can participate equally and receive the same materials as other participants. We deliver these services in partnership with community members and service organizations, utilities, corporations, foundations, and government agencies.
