Strategic Conversations are planned, but informal, discussions conducted in a democratic and conversational style, and focused on policy issues. The goal of this effort is to help our Board of Trustees thoughtfully examine what drives its policy decisions, by involving everyone who wishes to express a point of view, and gathering information in a less structured atmosphere than the traditional Board meeting.
The process provides opportunities for a positive exchange of ideas and concerns, as well as improved decision-making among all constituencies. Anyone from the District, and the community at large, may participate in the Strategic Conversations, which are aimed at maximizing dialogue among all who have an interest in the District, establishing an environment conducive to consensus building, and developing a spirit of teamwork.
It is important to note that Strategic Conversations are not designed to result in formal decision, rather, to develop ideas and information that may assist decision making in the future. In addition, topics will be confined to policy, rather than operational matters. Topics may be proposed by anyone in the District, and will be selected by the Board Subcommittee on the basis of what seems to be of significant interest to the participants, and the District in general.
