Outreach and Education Task Force meeting
Cass County Annex
Members present: Michelle Strang; Todd Weinmann; Lyn Wolf; Rita Ussatis; Kim Lipetzky; two intern students Laura and Jared.
Discussed the indicators for the survey for the Metro COG plan. Kim encouraged the group to complete the survey and make sure that the questions were appropriate for this task force.
The majority of conservation dealt around the letseatlocal.org website and a policy for posting on the web site. After a lengthy discussion the consensus was that only government agencies would be allowed and not promotion of individual products. These will be referred to the appropriate Department of Agriculture for inclusion into their materials. Michelle and Rita will write the policy.
An education power point to be used for marketing and education in regards to the Cass Clay Food Systems Initiative will be developed to be used by anyone to educate the public about the efforts of this initiative.
Reminded the task force of upcoming events.
