AGENDA – Sat. 13th March 2010

Provisional aim of the day:  To have come up with some solid proposals so that everyone goes away knowing what’s going to happen action wise as a network in the North.

11am – 11.30 – Welcome, housekeeping

11.30 – 12.00 – Feedback from national gathering
– impressions, decisions, how might that effect us?
Report back from CJA meeting in Amsterdam
Do skills inventory – what do we lack?  What do we have?

12.00 – 13.15 – Split into groups of 6 – 10 people.  A choice of discussion on these two things below.  Aim to start creating proposals.

What are we trying to achieve strategically?
Movement building? Outreach? Radicalisation? Concrete results?
How do we achieve this short, mid and long term strategically?
How does that relate to National?  What can we do (as a region) – action wise?
What do we want to do (as a region)- action wise?
What would we like to see the national network do – action wise and strategy

How can we relate to the national gathering?
How can we share skills?
How can we feed forwards and back practically – i.e. minutes/proposals/spokes?
Do we need our own finance and/or other working groups?
What about internationally – can we mandate people to feed into CJA – or anything else?

Possibility of talking about Politics too, if people want, although ‘politics’  should also run through the other discussions.

13.15 – 13.30
Have feedback from the groups before lunch
Emphasis on creating concrete proposals please

13.30– 14.30 – LUNCH

14.30 – 15.00 Shout out for proposals that people want to talk about (both from earlier discussion, and leftfield)

15.00 – 16.00 Split into working groups to flesh out these proposals (as many groups as proposals want to discuss).  Creating pros and cons.

16.00 – 17.45 – Prioritise proposals, and then discuss them in order of enthusiasm.  Spend two hours on hearing proposals and seeing what we can come to consensus on.
Temperature check before hand, bike rack contentious ones, push forward on warm ones to give more time to debate and amendment on contnetious ones.

17.45– 18.00Announcements, housekeeping, shake out, chill……….
