Delegates Workshop: Getting back on track

Update (July 16, 2020): Rather than a formal delegate's assembly, MVA's organizing committee has decided to reconfigure this event into a workshop. IAF organizers will offer guidance on how to to get the alliance back on track. We will offer this workshop 2-3 more times to accommodate our membership's summer schedules. 

Prior to the event, please review this draft document, consider whether it aligns with your organization's priorities, and give some thought to which components of the organizing plan your members would be willing to contribute time and resources towards. 

Concerned about racism, climate change, affordable housing, public health, worker's rights, colonialism, mental health, a Just Recovery? Let's reorganize MVA into a diverse, powerful broad based organization capable of meaningful change. 

Join MVA's board and organizing committee for an internal audit of your alliance:

  • Current financials and the budget required for a full-time organizer
  • Current membership and the diversity required to "stand for the whole"
  • Organizing plan for 2020-2021: financial sustainability, expanded membership, and strengthening our member institutions

Each member organization is asked to send 3-5 delegates. Delegates should be prepared to report on your organization's commitments to MVA (report questions will be sent out by July 15th).  

Register below to receive the Zoom link one day prior to the event.

Detailed agenda coming soon. Please email [email protected] if you would like to help the organizing committee plan the assembly. We will be meeting on Zoom, Monday, July 13th, 5-6pm to plan the agenda.
