Logistics: The meeting will happen right here at this post. Details are below. The agenda will be posted here in the next few days – stay tuned!

The clock is ticking on our 10-year mission. We therefore need to be assured that every aspect of our work is supported to create as much change as possible in that short time. What structure will create ease and effectiveness for accomplishing our mission?

For the past few years, that question has been our board’s primary focus. We are now at the point of building what we have envisioned. 

At this meeting, we will be taking first steps in that build-out process. And you are invited to be part of that discussion!

How to Prepare

If you are not quite feeling up to speed on this meaty topic, this is the “doing” stage of a 4-year effort to determine the structure that will best accomplish our mission. You can read more about this journey in this summary post here.

The agenda for this month’s meeting can be found here: AGENDA.  At that link, you will also find some supporting materials that may be helpful in the discussion.

How to participate

If you have never been part of Creating the Future’s work, all our strategy and board meetings are open and participatory, for anyone who wants to be part of the discussion. You can see more about that at this link.

Where we meet:

The board meeting will take place right here at this post. If the video does not appear precisely on the hour, please be patient – we are probably just running a few minutes late.

There are 3 ways you can participate in our meetings.

  • If your commitment to Creating the Future’s work is calling you to be actively involved in the meeting discussion side-by-side at our online “meeting table,” let us know, and we will send you an invitation to join us online.
  • If you want to participate but are unable to be in the meeting itself (perhaps you’re at work, or maybe at home with kids running around, etc.), watch the live-stream in real time and tweet your questions and ideas to us via the hashtag #CreatingTheFuture. We read those tweets aloud during the meeting, just as if you were there. 

(Please note: We will only see your tweets if you use the #CreatingTheFuture hashtag. In addition, during the meeting, we will not look at blog comments here at this post. While we will check those comments later, during the meeting we will only be following the #CreatingTheFuture hashtag in the Twitter stream.)

  • Lastly, if you want to simply watch, or you want to think about what you’re hearing and respond later – or if you will be watching the recording after the meeting happens – please add your thoughts into the comments here at this post. We will include that thinking into the mix of things.

We look forward to your being part of our discussion on Monday, March 11th!
