Action Teams are critical to plan implementation.
These teams will be formed at the community level, with leaders from across the Region collaborating with one another to address specific results and action steps identified in the regional plan. Regional Action Teams will be “on the ground” support for the plan, identifying and engaging other community stakeholders, recommending plan revisions based on experiences and best practices, and monitoring, as well as celebrating our successes. It is important to note the regional plan is a fluid document; as our Region grows and changes through our actions so will the regional plan.
Regional Action Teams must be comprised of leaders who are passionate about achieving results and who understand that without action we are doomed to remain stagnate. Team members accept personal responsibility for their communities. Initial orientation meetings for Regional Action Teams will be held following the 2010 Summit where our regional team leaders will be identified.
Regional Action Team Responsibilities
Regional Action Teams will democratically determine how the team is organized, its implementation methods, and its meeting frequency. Ideally at least one Regional Action Team will take responsibility for each Action Step and it is anticipated that Regional Action Teams will address more than one action step.
