Maryknoll Affiliate Board - Consensus Action Statements
Meeting # 60 April 20, 2018 and April 22, 2018
CAS #1. The Board will explore developing on the website one of more “actionable landing pages”. The Communication Committee (Bob Short, Mary Ryan-Hotchkiss, Paula Schaffner, Ginny McEvoy) and any other Affiliate who would like to participate will develop a proposal that includes content and seek an estimate of the cost of developing these pages.
CAS #2. Paula Schaffner will revise and reorganize the Affiliate Booklet based on input given to her by the Board by June 1. The revised version will be sent to the Board by July 1 for approval by July 15.
CAS #3. The Board unanimously approves Bill Murphy’s serving a second term on the Board.
Along with the above Consensus Action Statements, we heard from the ad hoc committee established last November to consider, “Where do we want to be in five years?” The committee, which has met several times via Zoom, continued their deliberations after the board meeting, on Sunday afternoon and Monday. We thank them for their energies and wisdom as they work to provide the background and a framework for the visioning process. The October Board meeting will devote a two-day retreat to discussion of this question.
Several chapters have asked themselves where we will be in five years and have provided input to the Board. If your chapter has not yet had this discussion, consider using the easy meeting “Visioning the Affiliates,” in the Sept/Oct 2017 NSFA. We all will be facing the challenges presented by our evolving world.
