[Cato] [External] Soliciting feedback

I don't know more about IC. I explained to Tod Treat the situation and what we needed and I am waiting to see what happens -- I know they were working on the agenda as of yesterday.

To Keri's point, it's apparently an unusual meeting -- I've heard that at least four items initially on the agenda have been bumped.  I have no idea how that group sets its priorities for any given meeting.

In one case an item was bumped to a committee, which gives it a more circuitous path to the main group for recommendation or vote. I don't think that's the best venue for the kind of feedback we want -- mostly those committees focus on workplan items --  but it's a possibility I can pursue. Since Tod Treat is on the committee I staff, that may be helpful.

I also asked Tod about the business meeting agenda and have not heard back. SBCTC's lead IC staff person told me that they don't have presentations in the business meeting but occasionally bring people in to answer questions. I don't know what that business meeting item/discussion is and our staff didn't either.

Looks like I jumped the gun -- our team met yesterday, and I always give them a brief CATO update.  I shared the great work that you, Terrence, Ward and Mark have done with the presentations to WACTC Tech and the Commissions and briefly described the options.  I didn't mention any of the feedback from WSSSC or HR, nor did I really solicit any from my group, but I don’t see how it would hurt to ask (my team was excited to know that this work is reaching the upper echelons, since we desperately need leadership support on our campus). I think it also serves the purpose of connecting individual teams to the bigger picture statewide.  We don’t meet again until March 15, and the focus of that meeting will be on developing a communication strategy (Mark will be there too).  If you think it’s worthwhile and appropriate, I could send out the one-pager, which includes the PowerPoint, and ask for their input via email.

And Mark, were you able to join the AT discussion at IC?

Quick idea- what do you all think about soliciting feedback from the Access360 schools on the models we’re presenting to commissions? That group might be engaged enough to actually give feedback if we ask the leads to share the one pager with their teams. You all are 1/3 of those groups, so feel free to tell me your teams wouldn’t care. :)
