1. We plan to charge for registration and get a state park conference center donated, since several state agencies are involved; We recently put on a leadership retreat at a lovely venue for $0. We have a large membership, and some of them have facilities. Some of them have organic food. Some of them have printing budgets. We are usually able to cobble things together.
2. The target audience is high-level leaders in health, education, early education, nature facilities & programs (parks, camps, etc.) and urban planning.
3. The two outcomes are: 1) elevate the visibility of the movement in Ohio, from a PR perspective, by involving the Governor and others in high levels in the state and 2) have these leaders sign on to commit to certain action steps within their sectors. We plan to work with at least one key person in each sector ahead of time to help formulate these steps, determine the best people to invite, and establish a method for following up.
