Good afternoon everyone-
Please mark it in your calendars. We’d like to send a save the date to the Policy and Advocacy workgroup for a September convening.
The phone conference meeting will be held Friday, Sept 11th @ 3:00pm EST.
Please note that this conference is open to everyone who has participated in previous policy and advocacy committee meetings (currently everyone on the Policyadvocacy@sibleadership.com workgroup list) at any of the SLN conferences. We know it has been a while since you have heard from us- but there’s no time like the present to bring us back together.
We’re excited to reconvene this group again as we look to setting the SLN priorities for policy and advocacy this Fall.
The dial-in for this conference will be:
Dial-in Number: 1 (605) 475-4333
Participant Access Code: 630321#
Here is our working agenda for this meeting
1. Update on the PA Workgroup and the broader SLN efforts – what have we been up to? (15 min)
2. How do we evaluate/interpret policies from a sibling perspective – determining guidelines (30 min)
3. Developing the Fall 2009 SLN Policy Agenda – What do we see as important? (30 min)
4. Who will do what? Keeping in touch- workgroup communication and collaboration (30 min)
We look forward to connecting again. We also hope that this phone conference will be the first of many.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Have a good weekend,
Steering Committee Co-Chair
The Sibling Leadership Network
