As above, the Coalition’s Planning Table has the role of overseeing the Coalition’s Strategic Plan and encouraging the many initiatives affiliated with the Coalition to align with each other and with the goals of the Coalition. In order to do this effectively, the Table has asked the various groups (networks and initiatives 2016-17 Tables/Networks/Working Groups Co-Chairs list) affiliated with the Coalition to report to it on a rotating basis (Coalition Structure Chart June 19 2015). There is a rotating schedule for all task groups and networks. Each task group and network completes this form Working Group-Network Update and brings it with them to the Planning Table meeting. The second page of this document is a copy of the guidelines Planning Table members will be using when listening to your report on the work of your network or initiative.
