Committee on Collegial Development Convenes For First Time
Tuesday, October 7, 2014
The new Committee on Collegial Development convened its first working session. The CDC is envisioned to operate as a program committee of the UUMA and is charged "with advising, collaborating and assisting in the development of strategies, programs and best practices for strengthening collegial development throughout the UUMA."
The CDC recognizes that collegial development has long been an ongoing focus of many groups within the UUMA. In doing its work, the Committee's focus will be to strengthen collegial components of existing programs, improve access and communication across the membership, and fill gaps where they might exist.
During the course of its meeting, the Committee engaged in "visioning" what "good collegiality" looks like, undertook a comprehensive review of existing UUMA programming, discussed what's working and what's not, and established working groups to tackle specific priorities. It also established a time line that targets delivery of a draft strategic plan to the Executive Director by the end of February 2015.
The CDC is comprised of the following members: Peter Friedrichs, Debora Raible (co-chairs), Sarah Moldenhaur-Salazar, Brian Kiely, Ashley Horan, Claire Feingold-Thoryn, Marni Harmony and Trica Hart (UUMA Board At-Large). Don Southworth and Allison Palm staff the committee. Any questions or comments can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll keep you posted as plans develop!
