[ALAC] CONSENSUS CALL: Reconstitution of the ALAC Subcommittee on Outreach

Folks

I think we all agree on this direction.  But one of my fears is yet another committee - even a renamed one - to solve a problem.  My suggestion once there is a renamed Committee is to make the issue of outreach AND engagement an agenda item on the next RALO call - to see what that RALO is doing now and any strategies they have for engagement.  All of us then can learn from each other - and maybe wind up with a Mission Statement and strategies that reflect what we are doing or can reasonably expect to do.

(that’s a yes to renaming)

There will be two members per region named annually by each region. The Chair/Co-Chair/Vice-Chair structure will be decided by the new Subcommittee once it is formed. Like most ALAC groups, this is an open group and anyone else (including Outreach current members) may join.
