Member Recruitment Activity

Jen Telander commented on the different sectors that could be better represented on the coalition like Civic and Volunteer Agencies, Media, Youth-Serving Agencies, Religious/Fraternal, Businesses, and Healthcare. She asked everyone to write down people from the community that would be good representatives on the coalition – either name or organization. She commented that there are a number of ways members can be involved in the coalition’s work. The attached list displays who was recommended as well as who volunteered to approach them. Due to timing, we were unable to finish the activity so we will pick up where we left off at the December meeting. Alicia asked those that volunteered to connect with individuals in the community to try to do so by our January 18 meeting.  


Alicia has recruitment resources that can be used when talking with individuals about the coalition.

The meeting was adjourned at 10:30 a.m.
