2010 Reporting and 2011 Plans: End Strong, Start Strong!
Now is the time to tend to end-of-the-year housekeeping — a wonderful excuse to celebrate all that we’ve accomplished together! Have you reported all of your great advocacy actions for 2010? Have a quick conversation with your group leader now so you can get your year-end benchmarking completed. And while you are at it, why not take the time to plan your next meetings for January? Essential group planning materials have been shared with group leaders, and more will come in January; have you booked a planning date with your group? Also, take note of upcoming 2011 opportunities listed in the weekly update calendar, including the monthly national conference call (January 8), a power-mapping training call (January 12), and a new activist orientation series (beginning in February). Put those dates into your calendar and be ready to hit the ground running after we’ve all taken time to celebrate the season.
