I have a full time staff member, Erin Read, who provides support for this effort. Between the two of us, and in consultation with other colleagues, we facilitate the planning of meeting, recording minutes, etc.
Hi Jennifer! We are very excited about the partnerships we've formed for our MAPP process. We started with an internal "core" group to make sure we had the capacity within our health dept to support the process. Spent a lot of time working on our messaging and completed the CHSA and CTSA mostly with health dept resources. Then we had a huge community meeting, inviting all of the movers and shakers, including neighborhood groups, we could identify. We made sure the meeting was impressive - great location, very well planned, invited Louise Kent from KY to come speak. It made a good impression! We asked folks to "volunteer" for the leadership team, had an orientation meeting for the team, and we ended up with the great group you see on the website. After a few leadership team meetings that I facilitated, we asked for the formation of an executive team. The group nominated Warren Sayer, Mark Field and Paul Erwin (see info about these folks on the website) and Grant Rosenberg and Martha Buchanan have been added as committee chairs. We continue to provide staff support for organizing meetings, but the executive team is now making decisions about meeting agendas, process, etc (with our guidance and support). Warren runs the meetings. I hope this helps. Feel free to call me at 865.215.5297... Stephanie
