Complete Group Roadmaps in January. For years, RESULTS annual group planning has been integral in helping you be some of the most effective volunteer advocates around. Your Group Roadmaps are of particular importance in 2023. With a new Congress and a new congressional map, your Roadmaps will tell us how much coverage and potential impact RESULTS has. To kick off our new Set the Agenda campaign (more details to come), please schedule your group’s roadmap/planning meeting now so you can complete your 2023 Roadmaps by January 31. Your 2023 Roadmaps are in the same spreadsheet you used for your 2022 plans (contact us if you need help). Also, please review our 2023 Roadmap Guide, Individual Planning Form, and Grassroots Goals found here under the “Make your group plans”. Look for more about the planning process on our January 7 National Webinar (register here). Happy planning!
