Our Executive Committee is pleased to announce their search to contract with an individual or organization to carry forward the planning phase we are currently in from January to March 2021. This individual/org may or may not take on a formal role when our new model is launched in April 2021. Please see attached Contract Opportunity Announcement and share widely. Deadline to apply is Dec. 3. 



Jeremiah Program: After leading the Jeremiah Program Rochester to the excellent position it is in today, JoMarie Morris is stepping down from her role as Executive Director. This position is now posted here. Please distribute widely.



There is a lot happening with the Consortium right now as we ramp up our planning phase with over 50 members and several partner organizations. Keep an eye out for updates as well as other useful information for your organization.

Site Information
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community,'s  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. could be an interesting first step.

The following defines the various project phases:
  1. Available - a product, program or service is in production
  2. Develop - program or application is being developed
  3. Plan - idea is solid, stakeholders are identified, and there is strong commitment to go forward from all parties.
  4. Concept Phase - idea scoped out with enough details to give an early sizing and/or to build a proof of concept
  5. Pre-concept Phase - an early idea or a requirement.
