  2. Post - at bottom of  each post can can like and share on facebook / twitter / google. Can email to someone also
  • Easy to send an email from group page
  1. Facebook - should we make our own Facebook page that can link folks back to YRN website. It’s another way to reach out with social media
    • Don’t want parallel, make it so it’s only a little text on Facebook and then link back to the website
  1. In next few months continue to post through personal Facebook sites because it takes time for people to use new website.
  1. Plan - Anna will create Facebook
  2. Next is snapchat and instagram but we can wait on that for a bit
  1. Calendars - add events to your calendar now easy, be sure to indicate if planning to go to event
  2. Can adjust in your profile under notifications so you don’t get too many emails, can even stop all while on vacation.
  1. Workgroups
  • Operations  - Meetings - how do we keep people more involved and can easily communicate with those who want to get more involved - perhaps in subcommittees and our communication systems.
    • subcommittee - monthly
  1. steering - monthly
  2. general - only quarterly - updates and agenda that can be sector/group focus but each general meeting still focused on outreach and bringing people into the group. Perhaps ACEs 101 prior to each meeting for new members and train the trainers or sector resource person (champions in workplace/agency/clients). Support network
  • Robb Davis - Online courses, skill building, video of presentations,
  1. Has program with Fresno Pacific University is in the negotiation stages
  2. Modules with content experts
  3. ACEs/YRN could create modules through this group once it is established
  1. Need to “Ask” those in YRN to get involved, but need to give them something to do
  2. Eventually each Work group and Sector will eventually become more independent but Steering Committee can still be resource/backbone (Collective Impact Process) to maintain the connectedness, broader vision
  3. Tool kit of Resilience kids and parents resources in our county. Ashley, intern with Jessica now
  1. Welltopia state level website. Local Welltopia may be able to be a template for other counties. Make 2-1-1 like this, beyond just the basic needs which it has now. Or Help me Grow (0-5 and parents) Perhaps merge
  2. Need content expert and someone to maintain.
  3. Where to host, how to keep it up, perhaps ask healthcare agencies to make this or fund
  1. Plan - Gail and Anna - will check on making Welltopia, Yolo County and 2-1-1 to house or link. Get feedback. How to keep up to date? Tara Thronson with Don Saylor can be a contact.
