New Member: National Breakthrough Network

The National Breakthrough Network is proud to welcome as its newest member, Jon McKenzie of Sarasota and Manatee Counties' IDEAS (Integrated Data Exchange Alliance of the Suncoast).

IDEAS is a collaborative funded by Sarasota and Manatee County Governments, and its primary sponsor is the Sarasota COAD, whose leadership is emphasizing data sharing and collaboration in "blue" skies, not just when disaster strikes.

IDEAS is launching five partnership portals on their VisionLink CommunityOS system representing 2-1-1, Disaster Preparedness, Childhood Mental Health, Elder Care, and Social Services Case Management. Welcome Jon!!

The National Breakthrough Network is sponsored and supported by VisionLink. NBN members are community leaders working to reach new levels of collaboration and effective and efficient service. Much more than a "users group" this national network selects its own members and takes on some of the most forward thinking and pressing strategic and tactical issues in the field of community resource and client management.

If you would like to know more about the National Breakthrough Network, please contact our our Vice President for Strategic Advantage, Lois Ann Porter. Her email is porter@visionlink.org. It's an amazing group, and VisionLink would not hold the leadership position it does without this group and its individual members.
