OWA+DP at Women's March in OAKLANDby Bridget Basham | Share #1247
OFFICIAL BUSINESS TRANSITION MEETINGby Maryam Moayery NIa | Share #1251
On December 19th, 2017 the old and new steering committee members met at Bridge’s home in Oakland for the annual Steering Committee transition meeting. We discussed the various Steering Committee positions and responsibilities for the new members and each person chose her
new or continuing role.
The new steering committee chairs are as follows:
Policies & Procedures: Chatham, Hannah
Programs: Basham, Bridget, Friedlander, Spring
Public Relations: Chan, Conyee
Membership: Vasquez, Helen
Newsletter: Moayery Nia, Maryam
Information Administrator: Vasquez, Helen, Moayery Nia, Maryam
We also said a heartfelt thank you and sad goodbye to those members rotating off the steering committee: Cynthia Bathgate, Rebecca Friedberg, Carol Mancke and Aziza Zare. We’ll miss them at the meetings but will see you soon at an upcoming OWA event.
We then reviewed the goals from the 2017 Visioning Retreat and gave updates on progress. We discussed membership strategies and
potential upcoming programs. (See Programs)
Finally, we set the Steering Committee meeting dates and locations for the 2018 calendar year. As usual, we will alternate between San Francisco
and East Bay. As a reminder, OWA members are always welcome at any Steering Committee meeting.
Logged-in members may always view complete, approved meeting minutes on the OWA+DP website at https://owa-usa.org/minutes.php
