Board letter regarding Frank Willey’s Report

Hello Dear Community,

This past Sunday’s report-out session with the Rev. Dr. Frank Willey was informative, and as promised, we are sending out the two documents he has prepared after the What Now? Conversations. The first one is his Summary of findings and Recommendations. The second is the Compendium Transcription, which is the long, 60-page document that details the comments from each participant, paraphrased by Frank as best as possible. As we joked in the session, curl up with your favorite tech device for a good read on that one, which will provide the fullest possible picture of what was shared by our members.

While there is much work to do to guide us forward, the Select Committee on Staffing is already coming up with creative ideas, the recommendations provide us some guidance of where we can go over the next year or two, and we have lots of positive momentum now that we can rebuild stronger together.
