The Alliance member groups come together quarterly at Steering Meetings to build the regional strategy of our non-profit organizations. Between these quarterly meetings, our work is carried out by Committees. These committees execute our strategy via weekly or bi-monthly conference calls and meet ups. Much of our work involves collaborating with other state, regional, and national allies.
The Alliance works in a committee model. The Steering Committee sets strategy, priorities, workplan and values for Alliance, and makes key decisions. The steering committee is composed of one representative from each of the 13 member groups. Additionally, the Coordinating Committee supports day to day management and decision-making of the Alliance, and coordinates the overall workplan implementation. The Alliance also has a coordinator to facilitate and move forward the work of the Alliance.
There are also Committes that serve as the 'working groups' for the Alliance. There are three standing committies: the Legislative Committee, the Regulatory Enforcement Committee, and the Economic Transition Committee. In addition to these committees, there are ad-hoc committees that change depending on the priorities set for the year. Current committees include Comunications, Trainings, and Coordinating.
