Title: Short Term Attainable Goals for the GRP

Title: Short Term Attainable Goals for the GRP

Sponsors: Mike Heichman, Suffolk County and

Contact Info for Floor Manager: mikeheichman@verizon.net, 617-265-8143

Committees Vetted: Adcom, ComCom, CDLC, Membership & Diversity, & Platform

Background: Our party desperately needs a strategic plan. Unfortunately, it seems that the recent current effort has once again gone limbo. While important work was done, their initial plan proposed goals and timelines that were very unrealistic (opinion of Mike Heichman).

Summary: The June 23rd StateCom meeting will adopt attainable goals for the rest of 2012 and establish a process that will continue to develop attainable goals with a realistic timeline.

Proposal:

I.            Adcom

            A.            At the 6/23 StateCom meeting, the StateCom will fill any current vacancy.

            B.            Adcom will conduct an evaluation of its structure (This is unfinished business that has been on their busy agenda for a while) and come back with a report, including any recommendations, to the Fall StateCom meeting.

            C.            Adcom will come up with a report for the Fall, 2012 StateCom meeting of its major goals for the rest of 2012 and 2013, and include a list of things they will need from other structures of the State Party to accomplish their objectives.

II.            Working Committees

            A.            At the 6/23 StateCom meeting, the StateCom will remove any Director of a Working Committee that is not doing his/her work and seek to find a replacement.

            B.            All Working Committees will come up with a report for the Fall, 2012 StateCom meeting of its major goals for the rest of 2012 and 2013, and include a list of things they will need from other structures of the State Party to accomplish their objectives.

III.            Convention Planning Comm.

            A.            At the 6/23 StateCom meeting, the “Committee” will deliver a report of the progress that they have made in selecting a date and location of the meeting, and any other progress that they will have made.

            B.            At the 6/23 StateCom, at least 4 members will join the committee.

            C.            This committee will work closely with Adcom to plan the convention. A report of their progress will be made at the Fall StateCom meeting.

Summary: The June 23rd StateCom meeting will adopt attainable goals for the rest of 2012 and establish a process that will continue to develop attainable goals with a realistic timeline.

Proposal:

I. Adcom and Working Committees will come up with a report for the Fall, 2012 StateCom meeting of its major goals for the rest of 2012 and 2013, and include a list of things they will need from other structures of the State Party to accomplish their objectives.

II. Reports will be presented to the Fall StateCom meeting. The StateCom will spend 30 minutes (more if it decides to extend) discussing and deciding a plan to grow the party for the rest of 2012 and 2013.

This proposal tries to define the March 23 StateCom agenda as if the State Committee has already approved the proposal. In fact, some items will happen automatically (for example, “fill any current vacancy” is a normal statecom meeting agenda item and doesn’t need a proposal).

Some items place impractical demands on AdCom and further imply that AdCom is not doing its job as well as it should be. Some items assume nothing is happening in certain areas (which may or may not be correct); some items need statecom approval and cannot be immediately implemented at the same meeting as this proposal states.

Further, personnel items do not follow the bylaws procedures regarding disciplinary action and would be difficult to discuss and carry out in an open committee setting without the ability of statecom members to have a complete picture.

I suggest the sponsors (1) remove items that could be suggested as agenda items for the 6/23 meeting if feasible and (2) determine how other proposed actions can draw on the broader membership, not just AdCom.

Rick Purcell, Hampden County, just sent me an e-mail saying that he is co-sponsoring this proposal.

Thanks Rick,
