    Breaking into groups within policy committee along w/ monthly check-in call

    Ultimate goal: do the work based on the needs of the state + data collected


    Ideas for how to organize?

    Joe + Heather: Action Group and Data-gathering Group; filling in mission-driven questions and a regional focus

    Rachel: caution about dividing into subgroups; ensure actionable items are aligned with larger council. Frame the mission clearly before diving into action. Define committee more clearly and set structure in place

    Hanah: “Action” group = collecting data and information along a framework (from Joe) + Data-Synthesizing group. Regional liaison to funnel channels of information


    Purpose: continue evaluating regional needs as they come and address policy needs, developing comprehensive assessment, developing county-level educational tool-kits, + 1-3 high (state) level priorities, identify gaps in state-level food policy


    Rachel: feeling nebulous about Policy + Issues committee mission. Suggestion: define specific goals and pointed mission. Focus on the results of the statewide data collection, and ensure the work is guided by research not by personal agendas.


    Heather: need some guidance from organizational development including mission. Pairing up for meeting information sharing to fall under action, education, or assessment


    Jessica: Assessment of 67 counties, very large task, what to ask and why?



          Joe: Summarize data from regions

          Identify statewide food assessments :Hannah

          Independent research on thriving statewide councils: Heather will decide and divy out.
