New Book "Ignite!" Shares Strategies for Igniting Coalition Efforts

Richmond, VA (PRWEB) December 07, 2013

What strategies could make your coalition’s message stronger?

In new book “Ignite!”, Frances Dunn Butterfoss relies on her 25 years of expertise in health promotion to produce a four-part guide for creating and improving local coalitions.

Illustrating how to plan, build, fuel and sustain a cause, “Ignite!” compares forming a local coalition to building a campfire. Sharing sparks of intuition from Butterfoss, the President of Coalitions Work, this book uses proven tools to simplify steps for imaginative and resourceful community members who want jump-start their partnerships.

“After receiving my doctorate in public health promotion and education, I have devoted my academic and professional career to assisting local, state and national coalitions to be more effective,” Butterfoss said. “After extensive research and field work, I have analyzed the key strategies for successful partnerships.”

Guiding the reader through the steps of coalition-building, Butterfoss illustrates policy, systems and environmental strategies that work. From how to gather the best team, to identifying financial partners, “Ignite!” guides the reader from set-up to future strategies.

“Health is one of the most important topics in America,” Butterfoss said. “I wanted to share my enthusiasm for making communityies healthier with others aiming to do the same.”
