Monterey is a community of firsts. The city was the first capitol of California, home to the state’s first public library, and the site of California’s first theatre. But most recently, Monterey is known as the first community to implement a robust sustainable public-public partnership model, which has become known as the Monterey Model. The Intergovernmental Support Agreement or “IGSA” has become the trademark for all services to enter into mutually beneficial relationships between installations, local governments and counties. Monterey’s partnerships with the Army and the Navy have been established for more than 20 years.

This is a valuable learning and networking opportunity for community and installation leaders who have a hand in partnership development. The bootcamp’s agenda will draw from the vast knowledge of the people who pioneered the IGSA partnership model. You will learn from past and present implementers, managers and Army representatives, and hear detailed presentation of what worked, what didn’t, obstacles encountered, and effective solutions. The program will also include a site visit of the Presidio of Monterey.

This bootcamp is designed to provide an introduction to the concepts of IGSAs from the community/base that developed the original model. The content is specifically designed for military and community leaders who are new to the area of public-public partnerships and are looking to expand base knowledge.
