1 Minutes

Approval of September minutes

2 New Business

  1. MAPPINGS applications   – P2Pu’s grant is approved.
    1. A number of our learning circle partners have expressed interest in receiving a physical learning circle toolkit when they start learning circles; this would include things like nicely bound facilitator and organizer guides, some custom notebooks for learners with lightweight facilitation exercises, P2PU promotional materials, etc. So far we have not been able to fund such a project, but this grant would give us the opportunity to design a prototype with the hope of growing it into a more central part of the learning circle onboarding experience down the road. One of our grantmakers is matching funds we raise for the rest of 2019, so the impact of $500 would effectively be $1,000.
    2. Modified the web page on Mappings to stress something NEW. https://pbdd.org/mappings/
  2. Reviewed  https://pbdd.org/white-paper-anatomy-best-class-bridging-agency/
