Community relationships can be a symbiotic relationship between an entire local community, a constellation of clients and partners within your business community, a community-based organization or agency and your business. These relationships can be short-lived and serve one purpose or be widespread and sustained over years.

Regardless of the duration, the community relationship has the potential to positively impact your organization, clients, business partners, staff, their families, schools, and the community in general. The manner in which a relationship is established is a good indicator of its future success.
