  • 5. Conclusions/Recommendations
    Set a few, focused objectives: What do you want to accomplish?
    Leverage available resources.
    - Externally, assign staff members to promote your agenda within their job descriptions (eg. Who is keeping your agenda on the media radar?)
    - Internally, what do you do well?
    Get buy-in from all participants associated with your group so that they become outreach vehicles for you.
    If something’s not working, stop doing it.
