About Us > ECHO Network
What is the ECHO Network?
The ECHO Network began as the ECHO Council, a diverse group of approximately 40 community leaders who came together in December 2003 to promote the building of social capital in Winston-Salem and Forsyth County. Over the years, the ECHO Network has initiated several efforts such as a Volunteer Center, Leadership Summit, and Conversation Groups in an effort to bring people from diverse backgrounds together to build relationships as well as discuss issues that impact the Winston-Salem community.
What does the ECHO Network do?
The ECHO Network initiates programs to engage community members to build trust and long-lasting relationships. Its various committees, including StoryLine, meet on a regular basis to develop and improve upon ECHO programming.
The ECHO Council serves as a “think tank” for the Network generating innovative ideas and continually evaluating existing strategies that advance the organization's mission of building trusting relationships across lines of difference. Members of the Council also engage in a variety of individual, small-group, and large-group experiences designed to allow them to build trusting relationships with one another. The Council is a social-capital incubator and model for the larger community.
