by Rachel Minkin on Wed, Sep 7, 2016 at 04:33 pm

Sorry, if you've already seen this but we do also need to come up with some goals... 3 or so for the 2016-17 year. This needs to be done by next week! Apologies for the quick turn around but let's get things going!

I've included last year's goals as a starting point. Tweek these? Come up with new?

Last year's goals:

  1. Hold a discussion forum at Midwinter on how to assist low-skill workers with job searches.
  2. Work on a program for Annual 2017.
  3. Work to change the name of our committee to Services for Job Seeking Patrons.

I'd like to also add that we can reserve Discussion Forum space for mid winter if we can come up with a topic! Last year's was well attended so this might be the way to go!
