collaborative management group
YRAEH has been working on three collaborative HPI-funded projects that focus on Transportation, Capacity Building, and Street Health. In the past, we have had three individual working groups each focusing on these projects as separate topics. Because of the time commitments for three sets of meetings, it has been difficult to involve management staff directly, which left a gap in the decision-making level.
Have you noticed how much time can get hijacked by meetings? And they're all important meetings for a good reason that should probably be attended. But unfortunately it takes time. And eventually...we have to say no. The Alliance recognizes and values the incredible contributions made by senior management staff of our member agencies.
This is the first Collaborative Management Group meeting of the York Region Alliance to End Homelessness.
The purpose of the Collaborative Management Group (CMG) is to increase direct involvement of senior staff and decision-makers in collaboratively addressing issues of homelessness and poverty. Recognizing that senior staff often cannot participate in some initiatives because of the number of meetings, the CMG aims is to have less frequent, more comprehensive meetings with an integrative approach to building collaborative solutions to common issues.
