Mission Circle + Board of Directors
Hello, folx! Here are the meeting minutes! Check out the next steps first! Please review and +1 if you consent to these minutes and/or add revisions for me to incorporate! We’ll assume consent if you don’t reply within 48 hours.
From 6 pm to 7:30 pm on Thursday, July 30, current members of the Youth Power Coalition (YPC) mission circle gathered together.
Elections, new policies, and/or operational decisions, all made via consent
Three 2020-2021 Goals
…. (1) Make visible youth power
…. (2) Grow in the number of partners and people
…. (3) Set a strong foundation for organizational health and development [funding, team, and governance]
We must have an intergenerational team to bottom-line each goal we choose to work on.
…. Each sub-team will discuss their plan for accomplishing their goal.
On merging, we decided to
…. stay as Youth Power Coalition publicly but wait to see how our org develops before making any changes legally.
Far, Carline, and Rachel left after this discussion.
The Internal Comms team will continue migrating things to youthpowercoalition.org and organizing by circle.
