4 Action Item Status Updates

Walking through Action Item List and noting updates. In the minutes, this will record items closed.

  1. Closed – 6/19/17. Opened Sept 2015. Write-up how to access grant Database for C.O.D. – Barry Started Draft 8 Oct 2015. Went to COD on March 9th and drafted a procedure. In summer, Maryanna reviewed it. Tom is revising it with better pictures and information. He gave us his screen shots, once we finish it, we will link it to our volunteer page. Later may generalize it and link to it for partners. We made a web page out of it, and have done enough for this.
  2. Closed 6/8/17 – Opened April 9, 2016: Draft the statement of purpose for a conference, length, target speakers. Just the bare bones of it. Katherine will start the statement of purpose after she’s been to three conferences. (We are looking to forge stronger bonds between  partners.) Have draft available at: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1V1cEbJu2QVf4yZ24hvaw0p7RVMJik2jefDkimQiZRqw/edit
  3. Closed 6/19/17. Opened 12/12/16: Developed white paper approach on fundraising. We have a series of questions, will be sending them out and asking for further input, then drafting the paper. Sent the questions out, only got one response. Board will  personally ping people starting 4/3/17. Board did this, got 50% response rate with many good conversations. Drafted the paper, revised, send to contributors for comments. Releasing in June.
  4. Closed 5/1/17 – Opened 12/12/16: Create a postcard/bookmark/something with PBDD information that we can use at conferences, or a fundraiser. Started this with something for writing conference.
