Joint Work Meeting
On April 20, 2012 all the Work Groups met together for the first time. The project is a little over a year old. The first milestone, Strengthening our Communities – Civic Forums on Regional Strengths and Challenges was completed in early March. It was an exciting morning. Sixty Work Group members attended. They walked away energized and with a good understanding of the complexity and depth this project. Below is link to a summary of the meeting.

The Work Groups are designed to assist with completion of the regional plan and enhance the public engagement efforts. This project belongs to YOU and the rest of the residents of the Piedmont Triad. Your commitment is vital to the success of the project. There are various levels of engagement within each Work Group. If you cannot attend the meetings you can still receive materials and draft documents and be part of the conversation. Many of the Work Groups are using on-line meeting tools and conference calling.
