Community

POC strategy meeting

On May 21 from 9 am to 2pm, Partnership members reviewed its mission and the issues that it is committed to.

With facilitating help from Bob Graham and Jessica Maxwell, the POC examined its mission and the issues that the group wants to work on.  We also looked at sustainability and community recruitment.  Some useful ideas and recommendations came out of this meeting, namely, how to share the burden of various initatives and how to recruit more community members and train our future EJ leaders.

See the attached summary document for this meeting.
