Folks,

Folks, 

GODORT Steering has been actively working through implementation of the recommendations on virtual participation and reorganization.  

Keeping with our value of transparency, we would like to provide GODORT members an opportunity for public comment on a motion, Internal Liaisons:  GODORT Task Forces and Standing Committees. that Steering will be voting on at our next meeting May 6 from 2-3 est.

The text, including pros and cons, can be found here: https://psu.box.com/s/ztccwt1wvtqhdq4n300r3bcylf4b5kcd

If you have comments/concerns about the motion please write those in the comments field provide with this post.  If you want to send your comments directly to me (swoods@psu.edu) that is fine as well.  However, keep in mind that I will post them unless you indicate this is a private comment.  

Just so there is no confusion this is not a Bylaw change that requires a vote of membership.  However, as our organization continues to move forward and to identify its priorities there will be plenty of opportunities for our members to vote on important issues related to our future directions.   

Stephen Woods, GODORT Chair

p.s. members are welcome to join the Steering meeting as an observer.  I will be sending out an open meeting announcement soon with the details about how to connect.

Discussion Final Versions of Ad Hoc Reorg Committee Docs

by Stephanie Braunstein on Fri, Jan 22, 2016 at 04:41 pm

Here is the full complement of reports and appendices to those reports as produced by the committee over the last year. I believe I have made all of the necessary corrections and adjustments to these documents; but, of course, I could have missed something. If so, please let me know.  Appendix V is uploaded here as a separate document because that was the only way it could retain its formatting.

Appendix VI can be found at the end of both reports; it is a brief summary of the discussions at the Breakout Session at Midwinter.
