February 2018 Millennials Work Group Meeting Kickoff
The first meeting of the Millennials Work Group was held in February 2018. The group is made up of 15 Columbia community members representing those aged 17-35 who live, work or go to school in Columbia. CA President/CEO Milton Matthews welcomed the workgroup members and led off in a round of introductions. Millennial members of the workgroup shared their experience living or working in Columbia, their reasons for wanting to serve, and what measures of success they hoped the project would achieve.
The group discussed and agreed on a charter that outlines the project’s goals and ultimate outcomes, lays out the scope and timeline of the project, and provides the overall charge for the group. CA’s staff liaisons provided some general information on demographic trends occurring in Columbia, and members of the group brainstormed on what additional information may be helpful to them in facilitating discussion in future meetings.
At their next meeting, the group agreed they would select a chair and vice Chair to organize and run future meetings.
