Stakeholders are the people who hold an interest in or contribute to community success and vitality. Engagement sparks action, serving as link between pondering and problem solving. Leveraging community strengths and commitment, stakeholder engagement varies and is driven by questions such as: “Who is already at the table”; “Who is not at the table who needs to be?”; "What do we want?"'; "What values do we share?"; "What resources do we possess?"; "What are other communities doing that we could adapt or modify for our needs?"; and "How do we communicate our findings?"
