OVERVIEW

The Orange County Cluster Initiative establishes organizations within a formal cluster structure to optimize strategic benefits of clustering activities.

The Cluster Team works directly with Cluster Members to identify their needs and then addresses those needs through Cluster related services. Our commitment to the Cluster Members is based on building trust, communicating, respecting confidentiality, and working diligently towards meeting their needs.
