Education Committee Meeting (Open attendance encouraged)

It's time to start thinking about the next monthly EC meeting. The date, time and place are TBD and I'm open to suggestions. Just chime in below.

We have a lot to talk about this time. Here are the key items:
- Analysis of the classes held in September
- Discuss scheduled class(es) for October - December
- Develop an EC Mission Statement
- Develop an EC Vision Statement (2014 Plan)
- Schedule/Plan immediate classes for 1st quarter of 2014 (including developing new classes)
- Brain storm new outreach possibilities (immediate action potential)

    everybody contributing; some outcomes that actually made it to paper! 1 part common ambitions, lotsa parts diversity of thinking, 1 part ability to coalesce: stir it all up with the immersion blender in the air and--- we got results!

    Wish I could but I'm still in California. Maybe I'll finally make it next time.

    Sorry, I won't be able to make it. I have training on Monday's and Wednesday's. I am interested in thoughts on how the September classes went, and in plans for new classes, including possibly helping develop/run said classes, if they meet my skill sets.
    If someone has time for a phone meeting, or wants to swing by my place for a debrief on a different day that would be awesome. I have beer and/or coffee.

    I booked our Board Room at NRH Library if you want to use that... It is available 7:30-9:00 pm, but since I can be there is could go a little longer if need be... I can help with brainstorming, but feel vision and mission needs to be your group... these articles can help clarify the two if needed...

      Great references Todd. Also from the same blog, an article about core values: http://www.psychology...­

      Meant to post that to the Ethics and Values meeting thread, which I will do now...

    The doors lock at 5PM so I'll have to let anyone in. Please don't arrive too early because I'll be in a meeting until 7 or so. I'll be at the door to let people in from around 7 until 7:30. If you arrive late, I'll post my cell number on the door so you can call and I'll let you in.

    The Teacher Resource Center at the Botanical Research Institute of Texas (Near FW Botanic Gardens) is available and reserved if the committee wants to meet here. Might be an ideal place because some of the Tarrant Maker Board is meeting at BRIT at 6 before the Education meeting.

      If others are already there this may be the better choice...

      I think that sounds like a good idea. I'll update the post to reflect that location.
