  • YNPN 3.0 is about getting us to the place where we can actually take on those big ideas.
  • What are your chapters saying? Which are you most excited about?
  • I’ve been doing a little bit of travelling for the past few months and ever chapter that I met with, I would say to them, “we’re going to put the call out for chapter leaders to join these task forces that are going to develop systems and protocol that we’ll want chapters to adopt, what would that process need to look like in order for you to feel as though you had input along the way and could make an informed decision about whether or not to adopt a proposal when it was set up.”  We heard time and time again that you needed representation right from the beginning.  So the best way that we could think to do this was with a chapter congress. We’re calling it beta because one of the actual projects that the congress will take on is figuring out what a more permanent decision for chapter input and decision making should be, but we think this is a good structure to get us going. (Even in the most decentralized processes, there has to be a process for figuring out the process.  This is that process.) For those of you who haven’t had a chance to go to the rep submission form, there’s a place there where reps can talk about what interests them about the chapter congress.  The responses are all a bit different but there are definitely two themes emerging and they’re right on - 1) people see that YNPN as a national network is on the cusp of big things and they want to be a part of it, 2) Their chapter has put in place some really solid programs, structures or even principles and they want to share that with the network. That’s what’s so great about this chapter congress - it’s this perfect reflection of how our model has played out nationally - we create a basic structure for people to connect with and they - all of you - will bring ideas and skills far greater than anything we could have come up with on our own. Also, to be clear - there’s actual work to be done.  The whole point of this is that we need to come up with actual systems that will be implemented and we need not only the ideas but the capacity you bring to develop those proposals. So we structured the chapter congress with that in mind
  • Other tools used include: Google Docs Google survey Old listserv iMods
  • Mini annual report concerns around sharing data across national and with partners; privacy and security concerns
  • 3 Images: 1) Map with spots in CA, DC, NY, Denver, Chicago; 2) Map with more spots + dotted lines; 3) Map with more spots solid lines Talking points: Start with housekeeping Really important to mute yourselves in the meantime Also want to let you know that this conversation’s going to start pretty big picture but I promise you, we’ll get to the details, so just hang in there. Along the way, you can use your chat box on the right there to let us know when you want to know more about something or even if you’re really excited by something you here. If we’re not able to address it on this call, at least we’ll have it captured so we can follow up with you. Want to start by thanking all of you for giving me the opportunity to serve in this position First I want to thank the YNPN National board I also want you to know that we hear you re: the basic tools you need to run your chapters I see it on the list serv and When all of you RSVP’d, several of you asked about really important, really practical things that you need to run your chapter day to day – are we looking at a shared content management system, are we planning to revisit a shared 501c3 structure. More than likely this conversation won’t reach that level of detail but we will be responding to those questions that came up via the blog so that not only will we be responding to the particular folks who raised those questions but everyone can be aware of our plans in those areas.
