Focus Group: Saturday, June 23

You are all cordially invited to our first Strategic Planning Focus group.  The event is Saturday, June 23rd, from 10 am to 1 pm, and we'll serve pizza for everyone who can stay to the end. 

With less than a year to go before the inaugural long retreat at SCOL, KCC is setting out a strategic plan for our future.  As any organization grows, it must consider weighty topics in order to continue to meet its core mission.  For KCC, that mission "is to support practitioners in their process of spiritual awakening. The emphasis in the training is on the cultivation of insight and compassion in both formal meditation and in daily life."  This first focus group gets to the heart of that mission--our programs. 

In preparation for the meeting, we've created a worksheet to help you pre-think some of the topics (see the bottom of this post).  And, if you can't make the meeting, consider filling it out and returning it to Dora DeCoursey; instructions are on the sheet.  We've also included some contextual information--useful even if you can't come.

We hope you can come join us.  KCC is a trust held by all members, and we know that keeping it aligned with its mission is so important to the sangha.  If you can't make this meeting, there are three more throughout the summer.  Put them on your calendar and come when you can:

Sunday, July 8, 2 pm to 5 pm
Our Urban Center: Finding our new home
Saturday, July 21, 10 am to 1 pm
Our Selfless Service: Working together
Saturday,  August 4, 10 am to 1 pm
Our Financial Resources: Creating the means to flourish
Hope to see you Saturday--
