CoC Governance Restructure

(Updated 04/10/2019)

On March 18th, the Blueprint Council endorsed the system vision developed by Clutch Consulting in coordination with CoC Committee Chairs and CHIP. The document is serving as a guide for potential updates to the Governance Charter as the CoC continues to align with the Community Plan to End Homelessness.

Over the last month, Clutch Consulting has performed a review of our planning activities and feedback from the planning focus groups, examined our CoC governing charter and committee structure, and analyzed Blueprint Council and Committee meeting minutes where governance was discussed. In early February, Clutch Consulting met with the Blueprint Council, Mayor and Community Leaders, and the CHIP Board to present preliminary recommendations and discuss next steps to move our CoC forward toward a more sophisticated and effective governance structure. The resulting Governance Strategy Memo is now available and outlines the recommendations, next steps, and a transition plan.
