A conference call of the Grassroots
Leadership Council took place on Tuesday, May 11, 2010 at 8:30 p.m. The
meeting was chaired by John Collet and attended by all the members of
the Council, including Terry Stockham as a non-voting member, and by
Sean Matula. There were three items on the agenda, but due to time, the only one that was reached was the Strategic Plan.
The Outline of
a Framework Document for the Strategic Plan had been drafted by Phil
Hinson. The document is two pages and divided into the main headlines of
Vision, Mission, Values and Intermediate Goals/Performance Metrics -
probably to be renamed Tactics.
Phil incorporated the comments
from the phone conference into a subsequent draft to be discussed by the
Leadership Council shortly. Following that discussion, it is
anticipated the document will be circulated to the Grassroots leaders for input. This step will be an important precursor
to action to grow the Grassroots.
Other discussion took place
concerning expanding the Leadership Council through subcommittees.
also taken place about the direction of the organization as it relates
to the database and software capabilities. Further work is needed.
conference adjourned at about 9:30 p.m. Eastern time.
