Time work commitment
Time/Work Commitment

  • Suggest 1-2 planning meetings within next 6-8 weeks to establish the key steps needed soonest: (1) select proposed dates - 3 proposed dates with 2 backups - and (2) develop a list of invitees.

  • The greatest communications burden is likely to occur between now until meeting dates are confirmed and invites issued; then within the week leading up to each meeting.

  • Sample templates for invites, agendas and thank-yous are available online or in the MAPP User’s Handbook. OLPH can arrange planning telephone conference calls as requested and address other supports as identified.

Time work commitment1
Time/Work Commitment

  • Identify DCC organizational partners for logistics (ie basic agenda; making nametags, order food, and helping MCPH facilitators at the meetings, followup, etc.)

  • All the meeting dates for all 8 districts should be coordinated between January and June to meet both the schedule needs of all DCCs and the contracted facilitators; please be ready to be flexible on dates.
