Organizational Design Work Group (ODWG)
As promised, the ODWG met last week via Zoom for a two-hour video conference to review the feedback from this summer's survey regarding the three models generated in Denver. From that discussion, a revised model has been developed and will go to the Board for their consideration. (Note: the board meets Wednesday, August 10 at 3:00pm via Zoom.) Board members have been encouraged to discuss the proposal with their regional directors and chairs. If the Board approves a model, it will go to our attorney to assist us in revising our bylaws. We hope to send the model, the Board report and the bylaws to the membership the first week of September.
If the Board approves the proposal, the next step will be the revision of the bylaws. We will send those out to the membership by the first week of September for comment. We will not vote on the bylaw changes until early November, allowing every region to discuss the model and the bylaw changes at their regional meetings. I will attend each meeting to facilitate discussions along with the regional board rep and, when available, members of the ODWG.
Please continue to hold the members of the ODWG and the Board in your thoughts as they engage in this important, creative and challenging work!
