A Note from One Joplin’s Executive Director

As I compile this newsletter, I am humbled and amazed by the dedication and commitment of One Joplin’s partners. I am excited to see what can be accomplished when partners connect across teams at the One Joplin Summit. I would like to challenge you to not only attend October 6 but also extend a personal invitation to at least one community member to bring their perspective and ideas.
