Nominating Committee

Nominating Committee chair Linda Duckworth gave a report on the activities and plans of the committee. They plan to distribute a recruitment flyer as widely as possible.

Big Picture Discussion

The Board discussed the draft proposal on “Strategic Messaging for 2013 and Beyond”. The focus was on considering a campaign-like theme, along the lines of the successful Power the Vote theme of the last two years. Since we are in a post-presidential election period, should we have another theme, the same, or none at all? Several ideas related to Powering Our Voice were discussed, as well as other suggestions.

MacNamara adjourned the meeting at 11:42 a.m.
