An ANR leadership meeting was held June 28 at the UC Davis Activities & Recreation Center. In addition to the Executive Working Group, Strategic Initiative leaders, executive associate deans, county directors, statewide program directors, REC directors, and unit directors attended.
Dan Dooley, Barbara Allen-Diaz, Kay Harrison Taber, Bill Frost, Bob Sams and Don Klingborg gave updates on ANR’s budget and restructuring efforts that have been completed or are under way.
For the majority of the meeting, the participants formed break out groups to discuss four questions and brainstorm answers.
The four questions were:
- How do we as ANR’s leadership catalyze the development of internal partnerships across the continuum and prevent silos from forming?
- What changes not mentioned this morning do we need to consider to help preserve more of our budget for hiring positions?
- Beyond the ANR Report and our weekly email updates, what can we do to more effectively communicate with you, ANR’s leadership team, and with the whole of ANR?
- How do we better support you in your role of communicating with others in and outside of ANR? What roles does each of us play in telling our story to achieve awareness, understanding and support?
Group responses from the brainstorm session were recorded by facilitators and are now posted at http://ucanr.org/files/117046.pdf. These brainstorming comments will be used to further develop and refine the Division's structure, procedures and communication practices.
