This guide has been developed to provide facilitators of the S.T.A.R.T. Economic Development process with an easy-to-use checklist for their work with co=unities. The guide does not provide background information on facilitation techniques; you have been invited to be a facilitator because of your group process and training experiences. Instead, the material lays out the activities which take place during the S.T.A.R.T. Economic Development process, highlights your responsibilities, and gives you a view of where you want the resource team and steering committee to be at the end of each of your site visits.
