  7. Strategic planning session – CPC Leadership Team to schedule a separate meeting to sit down and prepare our 1 year/5 year/10 year plan.
    • Michael from altView has offered his services (free) to facilitate this Strategic Planning meeting; He would assist us by guiding the CPC Team in the planning process, not telling us what we should plan. J
    • If the Team is agreeable to this, Nikki will begin process to set a date with everyone
  8. Amielle – group meals, after planning sessions or another time. Creating community around food
  9. Nikki – has had a request for specific queer group supports. What does CPC think about creating FB groups of queer subgroups for connection purposes – Camrose Poly Group, Bi Group, Queer Teen Group, etc. People are having a hard time connecting without having to out all their private stuff at initial meetings.
  10. Nikki – notice of  Fire Ceremony – Before we can move on to repairing the wound from having people protest our existence within the community, we need an outlet to validate the wounding itself
    • Nikki would like to hold a Queer Community Fire Ceremony, on October 11th, 7:30-9pm, at the Jubilee Park.
    • Focus – to give members an avenue to voice how this experience has changed their perception of safety within the Camrose community, or any other piece they will want to share. Allies are welcome
  11. This is the first of a 3 part seasonal response that Nikki would like to facilitate – Autumn season, Fire Ceremony; Spring season, Wishing Tree community art; Summer season, Community Mural (hopefully)
  12. Upcoming Events and Plans
  • CommUNITY Healing workshop – FREE – on September 28th, 12:30pm-4:30pm.
