on the Steering Committee implies commitment to the following:
BREAKFAST NETWORK MEETINGS: This function is the vehicle that effectively
provides for the ability and success in meeting the MISSION STATEMENT of this
organization. The Steering Committee is assigned the task of maintaining the integrity
and continuity of this function, to serve as an informal forum for networking,
information, education and debate. No other opportunity exists in the York community
for staff and interested individuals at all levels of community service and for
persons from multiple disciplines and backgrounds to meet in a planned, organized
manner which addresses and furthers the goal of strengthening the families who
reside in our community.
CO-SPONSORSHIP OF COMMUNITY - WIDE EVENTS: This program function will not
supersede, detract from, nor replace goal number one, but should only be pursued
to serve to further strengthen goal number one in the context of the MISSION STATEMENT
of the organization.
that context, Family Issues Roundtable will consider engaging in one community-wide
event per PROGRAM YEAR as appropriate. The purpose of such co-sponsorship will
be to encourage collaboration, to broaden the ability to obtain available resources
and to expand the base of those who can aid in planning and implementation.
events are encouraged with one or more responsible groups from the community.
These events would be activities not conducive to the informality of the networking
breakfasts and would likely be more formal and structured in nature. Forums that
address the public and separately those involved in service delivery and decision
making are to be encouraged.
sponsored events should be planned in such a manner that meets the standards of
quality and professionalism. Consideration should be given to the provision of
Continuing Education Credits to meet the needs of various professionals whenever
feasible. Consideration should also be given to evaluations of such events, to
aid in determining the impact, benefit and future planning.
agreeing to any co-sponsored event, all parties enter with an understanding that
they share in planning, implementation, promotion, recognition, as well as the
fiscal aspects - sharing in all expenses that may occur as part of that event.
subcommittee will be formed representing all sponsoring agencies/organizations
in order to facilitate implementation. Any representative of the Family Issues
Roundtable may not commit to any formal agreements or expenditures without the
approval of the Steering Committee.
