Thanks to the many individuals who provided feedback regarding the future of all-staff meetings (see “Focus groups provide valuable input”). Your feedback was very helpful in assisting Ad Cabinet in reaching a final decision about how frequently to pull staff together in one location.
The plan going forward will be to bring staff members together in one location every three to five years and instead meet annually in sectors. The sector meetings can include time for “all agency” news and presentations allowing the remainder of the time to be used for sector related information. This will avoid the need for separate meetings for each purpose. Meeting dates for sector meetings will be shared yet this fall.
