Not Present: Sandra Gagnon. Tia Poalino
This was a first, organizational meeting. A brief history of the affiliation process for the Rutland Affiliate was shared with the committee members. Committee members then reviewed the charge of the committee, especially the necessary focus on a family that will need to be maintained. Materials from the Application for Affiliation were printed and shared. In addition the committee was familiarized with the My.Habitat.org website, as well as the Affiliate Operations Manual for Family Selection.
There was a discussion of the various tasks the committee will need to complete in the selection of a family. This will begin with a review of the application, which will be customized over the course of the month of June. The various verifications and checks were also briefly discussed. There was also a discussion of the need for confidentiality, once applications are received. A particular prerequisite will be for secure, long term storage of documents.
For the next meeting, the committee will engage in role playing, with Gail Johnson taking the role of an applicant submitting an application. From this discussion, the hope is that necessary processes and procedures will become apparent.
Next meeting will be June 16.
