In other news, it has been a very busy month as we prepare to launch the 10%
Challenge Campaign early next year. Several Board members have been
advancing the planning for the 10% Challenge Campaign.
Areas of focus include organization, administration, marketing and database
I would like to make a special request for assistance from members in three
areas of planning focus: 1) Transportation, 2) Communications/Marketing and
Outreach and 3) Campaign Infrastructure. For transportation, a group of
folks (new and old) have decided to for a committee to revisit the plan and
to help coordinate communications. If you are interested in participating in
any of these working committees, please do not hesitate to contact the lead
staff person. For communications and campaign infrastructure, Tom, Mary,
David, Asher, and I are developing a work task list. We may be calling on
you for your assistance.
I am pleased to report that the transportation committee met yesterday and
revisited the Action Plan and proposed TDM measures. Those present agreed
that we need a communications framework that includes a status on TDM
efforts, and stakeholders progress on selected measures. We discovered that
a lot is going on and it was time to develop a communications effort to
inform boards including the RPC and MPO. Christine Forde with assistance
from Asher will be taking the lead on advancing activities in preparation
for the Campaign and beyond. Anyone with information on a TDM measure
should send a brief paragraph on status to Asher at [log in to unmask]
