From Ann Striker
alliance4action is gearing up for a busy season as we welcome back our winter visitors. We’re keen to hear about the activities being taken in your home town.
We have taken some organizational steps we’d like to share with you.
First, the Leadership team adopted a mission statement on October 13:
alliance4action empowers and mobilizes our community to elect candidates and supports solutions that promote democracy and reflect our progressive values.
The Leadership team is the decision making body of a4a and consists of:
Lenore Bell #
Polly Daly #
Pam Duchaine #
Miriam Lindmeier #
Arlynne Ostlund #
Ann Striker #
Those with a # next to their name comprise the Core Group and do advance planning for the Leadership team.
We have fixed meeting dates and times.
The Leadership team meets the second Friday morning of the month and the General Membership meets the third Friday.
The Core Group meets on an as needed basis.
Specific information on the dates and guest speakers for these meetings can be found on our Facebook page and our website: alliance4action.org.
Most of our action teams have been meeting on a regular basis over the summer and their accomplishments have been many. Those include Health Care, Education, Racial Justice and Electing Progressive Candidates. The Immigration and Climate Change action teams are now resuming. Our LGBTQ group needs a new leader. Information about meeting times is available at aliance4action.org.
Next steps are to write by-laws and fill some critical positions. We’ll be publicizing the organization at Farmers Markets starting November 1.
We hope you will join us as we REENERGIZE! Put our Happy Our on your calendars for Monday, October 23 at 4 pm at the 19th Hole and spend some social time with like minded people!!
