CROCT held its second organizational meeting tonight at the Carleton College Rec Center. Of the 18 who attended, 10 were new, so we spent the first part of the meeting reviewing how we came to be. The main issue for the evening was a discussion on to what extent the club was going to be truly regional, given the large percentage of Northfielders involved at this point. Those who attended from the Faribault area seemed to be inclined to join the club rather than starting their own. Those from the Northfield area seemed glad to have them!
Our next meeting, April 7, 7 pm again at the Rec Center, will be focused on the actual formation of the club, including the election of officers. In the meantime, we’ll continue to make informal connections with area land managers (Rice County parks, Faribault and Northfield Parks, etc).
In between the organizational face-to-face meetings, all club internal communications are occurring via Basecamp, a web-based project-planning service. Contact us if you’d like to get involved with these organizational communications.
