The "Scope" of SSMN's Volunteers/Allies - Where do you fall?

SSMN is a growing nonprofit, and we have many volunteers and organizations/businesses who help us make Stillwater more sustainable. But where do they fall? Where do you fall? Are they a part of SSMN or do they align themselves with us? At the July Board of Director’s meeting the board approved this new graph and these terminology definitions:



The terms circled in blue are a part of Sustainable Stillwater MN.

The terms circled in green are supporters of SSMN.

The terms circled in black are independent of SSMN but support initiatives.
