Hi there! very happy to be part of this. The topics under our domain are very broad… and we dont have a lot of time until the summit. How do we propose to follow through with this? do we want to meet (online) to discuss our next steps?
critical ones include fundraising, budget ( though we have a dependency on
the other work groups to develop their needs), staffing plan ( after this
is identified by the groups) , community ‘thanks’, partnerships ,
communications, and operational and annual plans. Woah!!
a lot to do though we already have partnerships carrying over from last
If people are interested in any ONE of these, please let @suranga and
@terry know by the end of the week.
i think that we need to pull out some subsections so that we can make the notes page easier to get to specific things for Goal 6. . I would propose that we have some ‘separate’ sub links ( though i need michael to help me figure out so they dont get buried). these would reflect the goals that are listed above in the document. Then, we would need to help identify someone(s) who can help lead these.
thanks Michael for doing that. I divide up some of the topics onto the grid that Jamie out together ( and is posted on this page).
i will update that so that people can see where/ what we need to do next.
@terry - you mentioned a grid that you and Jamie had worked on. Is that posted somewhere? Is there a document we should be working on together or other things to be looking at? Just want to make sure I’m keeping up before any calls. Thx!
