Thank you to those who were able to make it out to last week’s meeting. Sorry we had part of meeting cut short for a guest speaker for Public Policy. I have spoken with the other committee leaders and that won’t happen again.

For our next meeting we will be laying out our core committee goals. Below, is our vision statement. Do send me your thoughts on what our committee’s goals should be. I have heard from a few of you already.

Our July meeting was a great starting point and a great example by the Innovation Triangle of what we, as a committee, are striving to build for the future with city and community partnership.

We have phased building our committee into three phases:
Phase one: setting a vision
Phase two: building a committee membership of local businesses, organizations and citizens
Phase three: goal setting
Phase four: implementation

Phase one: Setting A Vision – COMPLETE

Phase two: Has started with the addition of our committee and new members sitting at the table and contributing to the conversation. If you are a community leader and you would like to join us at the table, do let me know and our committee will connect with you.

Phase three: Goal Setting.
We are starting the process to create our committee’s core goals. We are seeking feedback from each member of our committee-knowing a bit more about our committee vision and what goals members would like to see us accomplish. We will be compiling your feedback for a committee discussion in August.

Thank You.
