Below are the Consensus Action Statements from the most recent Board Meeting – November 9, 2017, in Guatemala
CAS #1. The Board assigns an ad hoc committee of Bob Short, Rich Lessard, John and Mary Moritz, and an international member, possibly Patty Barneond, to begin meeting digitally and possibly in person. (The Society, Sisters, and MKLM could consult on specific areas.) They will develop the four topics identified in the discussion of Where we will we be in 5 years: Collaboration, Identity, International and Cross-cultural aspects, and Models. This will culminate in a retreat using the contemplative process for the Fall 2018 Board/RC meeting, where they will develop initiatives and suggested actions for Affiliates in the future
CAS #2. The Board by consensus adopts the Board/RC Travel Proposal to commit $12,000 over the next five years to fund travel assistance to Board/RC members as described in the draft proposal.
CAS #3. The Board agrees to recognize the Springfield, MA Chapter. Bob Short and David Schaffner will send acceptance letters and other appropriate materials.
CAS # 4. The Board re-elected David Schaffner as Chair.
