      • NCC members who participate in policy must:
        • Agree on a winnable objective
        • Have the right expertise and passion
        • Be motivated to lead and work with coalition partners
      • We all have limited time and resources
  • 24. The Solution?
    • Special Policy Groups (SPGs)
      • Specific in nature
      • Address policies relevant at the time and as they emerge
      • Draw from expertise in the NCC
      • Dissolve when objective has been met

    • Dissolve as a standing committee but keep policy change as an NCC goal
