Bill Traynor’s Trusted Space Partners is a national training and consulting firm dedicated to helping communities develop a new and effective networked approach to resident engagement for 21st century neighborhood life. He also serves as a strategic adviser to Lawrence CommunityWorks Inc. (LCW), which is working to rebuild the struggling city of Lawrence, Mass. (Bill’s hometown). As executive director of LCW for 12 years, Bill led the organization’s transformation from a staff of two (and a financial deficit) to a staff of 45, an operating budget of more than $2.3 million, a membership of more than 5,000 residents and more than $60 million in new redevelopment and community building efforts in the city.
Thank you! Grateful acknowledgment for community, corporate and foundation support of these programs.
