The Partners for a Healthy Nevada coalition meets quarterly. Special planning meetings may be called as necessary. All PHN members are welcome to attend special planning meetings. The facilitator will be responsible for scheduling quarterly and special meeting dates and locations, and notifying members.
A PHN member will volunteer to serve as PHN facilitator. This role includes scheduling the quarterly meeting, arranging for a meeting room, developing agendas based on input from other members, scheduling presentations, facilitating meetings, distributing meeting information to PHN members, compiling the year-end report, and drafting goals and objectives for membership review and approval.
All decisions will be made by consensus of the PHN members present/participating.
Prior to the first quarterly meeting of the year, the facilitator will provide a year-end report summarizing the previous year’s progress on stated goals and objectives.
Objectives for the new year will be drafted and reviewed by members at either a special planning meeting or via email. Input from members will be applied to a final version that will be posted to the website prior to the first quarterly meeting of the year. At least one PHN member will be assigned to oversee progress on each objective and will make reports to the membership at regularly scheduled quarterly meetings.
Goals, mission, and vision statements will be reviewed annually and revised as necessary.
