Strategic Planning

            I may be a bit pre-mature in posting this today.  Several Executive Committee members are meeting Monday to discuss preparations for our July meeting.  On the other hand, if anyone happens to peruse this low-use blog it would be great to have your thoughts…

            We intend to focus on a strategic planning process at our July meeting to help frame the continuing development of Yavapai Community Collaboration.  We started this particular journey one year ago.  Those we have connected with so far have indicated that it is important to continue.  To what end?  While the end may be important for some, the journey is also important.  What does the journey look like?  How does it feel?  Anyway – those have been and will be important reflections that we will need to engage in. 

            As we begin to frame how we continue the conversation I encourage you to check out: http://network.transpartisan.net/page/2009-citizens-summit    We are not alone in our pursuit of a positive approach to building relationships and creating community.  An important element of our next steps must include creating space to come together, get to know one another, and build relationships that allow us to be in community together.

It seems that one of our next steps might be to plan a “citizen summit” of our own.  Of course we may need to host a few pot-lucks along the way…
