    Dear Councilors, 

    The Forward Together Resolutions Working Group is organizing two additional information sessions. Your comments and suggestions during the previous sessions were very helpful to working group members, and we would like to provide another opportunity for virtual discussion between now and the Annual conference.

    These sessions are open to all councilors to attend and will give you the opportunity to see the latest drafts of the resolutions as well as give you plenty of time to discuss and provide feedback. Please note: there will be no formal voting during these sessions.

    When: Jun 7, 2021 03:00 PM Central Time (US and Canada)

    • Council 
    • Leadership Assemblies
    • Board of Directors

    Council, Leadership Assemblies, Board

    Hi Dorcas,

     

    These sessions will be an opportunity for the working group to share their latest revisions of the resolutions. Some content will be the same, but there have been changes. We are working to consolidate all the resolutions into one place and will make them available to councilors before the information sessions!

    Thanks! Yes, I knew there had been changes but these two sessions will be the same as each other, aside from points raised by attendees? I should have been more clear in my question.

    You guys are doing an excellent job.

    Hi Dorcas,

     

    If I understand your question, the two sessions will focus on different topics. June 7th will focus on Council, Assemblies and the Board. June 8th will focus on Core Values, Roundtables and Committees.
