Committee Elections

Jane Mayrer nominated Lou Packett, Lou accepted the nomination—wants to continue to move the process forward, but is also excited to get more people involved to take on a leadership role.

Moving forward Quincy will serve as co-chair and will be responsible for managing meetings, agendas, and organizing the work of the committee. Position will be an appointed position, will see if it makes sense to recommend as part of the on-going structure of the committee.

Ms Poindexter: what was the event Lou went to in DC? Lou went to a Leadership Foundation training in DC. The Leadership Foundation is an organization that has been connected to Bill Miliken who is a leader in the community school movement. The Leadership Foundation wants to develop a relationship in Baltimore—and there could be a connection with the community school work.

Lou was unanimously re-elected.
