Council begins work on priority setting

The Professional and Scientific Council opened its 2017-18 slate July 6, with most of the meeting set aside for priority planning.

During breakout sessions, eight small groups discussed feedback from constituents to compile action items for the council. Liz Zuercher, Grants Hub director, facilitated the process of consolidating and developing those action items into six general priority areas. Topics include:

  • Human resources
  • Supervisory training
  • Perks
  • Inclusion
  • Salary
  • Family leave

During a July 18 retreat, the executive committee will further refine the priorities for consideration by the full council at its Aug. 3 meeting.
