GROUND RULES

The ground rules were reiterated. 

CITY COUNCIL DEBRIEF

Members thanked the Steering Committee for its work and expressed excitement about the successful presentation of the CEC’s Strategic Plan to City Council on May 15th.  Several members also stated there was a lot more work to be done in securing a better understanding of the CEC’s work among stakeholders; particularly, its racial equity focus.  There was agreement that talking points that effectively messaged the CEC’s work needed to be developed and discussed among members.  There was consensus around this.  Dante James who was present thanked the group for its hard work.

WORK GROUPS

Members broke out into work sessions for the three different work groups to continue making progress.

Session concluded at 11am.
