Meeting#1: Monday Evening, September 23. Thank you for your interest in generating ideas and committing to work on producing Off-Season VYC Activity Offers, calendar 2013-2014. For this first meeting, we are using a conference space to focus ourselves on brainstorming & some near-term planning.
Your Own Pre-Meeting Prep: Outline of discussion questions. Questions for individual thought, and group discussion, will be sent to personal email address of those who have signed-on to this work group. Please give the questions some thought and attention before meeting. Bringing notes that will help you remember & share your ideas during discussion will also be helpful.
Committed to work group, but unable to attend 9/23 meeting? Do the "thought exercises" in the meeting prep outline (being mailed to group members separately) & email your resulting ideas & notes to me, with copy to Joe. Rough & wrangly notes are fine. Anything decipherable will be included in discussion.
Available to participate 9/23, but unable to attend in-person? We will make effort to conference you into the meeting, if you please inform us by Thursday. Send a note to me, copy Joe. For better integration in discussion, you may also wish to send your prep notes. If so, use direct email and send before noon Monday, to me with copy Joe.
