of welcome to Regional Council members
Please accept this correspondence as an initiating package of information--the first of several that you will receive between now and the first meeting on March 17, 2000. In this package you will find the following:
Also, FOR YOUR ACTION -
BY MARCH 5: Please sign the contract and complete the planning form then return both in the enclosed envelope that is addressed to our contracting officer, Patty Miller.
Among the additional materials you will receive within the next few weeks will be a short orientation questionnaire that will be used to help us prepare for the first meeting. I will use your responses from the questionnaire to work with the Council Chair, Mayor Eddie Smith, to develop the agenda for the first meeting.
The Mayor and I will be working with the Council meeting facilitator Jim Creighton. Jim has signed on to serve the Council as the meeting manager and facilitator. He has many years of experience working with groups like the Council and will be an excellent source of advice.
I look forward to meeting all of you at the reception the evening of March 16. The reception will give us a little time to become acquainted before we launch into the next, full day of Council business.
