The board of ECAN is dedicated to empowering a collaborative team identity associated with central Lane County, Oregon, working together for a sustainable networking platform that facilitates collaboration on social service projects among partner organizations and individuals.

We wish to demonstrate that there is an abundance of sources of love and compassion here, and that once our citizens become self-aware of their similarities there will an exponential scaling up of their impact on social problems. I've set a high goal for the basic funding that can be used to launch the products and services that ECAN will will provide:
  • Outreach via personal contact and public media to organizations and individuals on the topics of networking, human security, prosperity and quality of life.
  • Implementation of live events, web pages, newsletter and other media that build trust in collaborative relationships.
  • Measure and report the extent of current collaborative efforts and trends.
  • Celebrate successful collaborations
  • Research barriers to and best practices for organizational collaboration
  • Research and develop an index of social progress indicators that is updated every two years to show trends.
  • Provide clearinghouse information for individuals and partners seeking collaboration
  • Develop and provide education on the definitions of collaboration, empathy, security, prosperity and quality of life.
