ARC Restructuring meeting

A workshop to help in restructuring ARC was conducted on the 12th September 2007. The workshop was conducted by Ms. Rajshree Mathani. Some of the important conclusion of the workshop were

1: - Formation of a working group: - The working group consisting of five members was formed to look into various fund management options, the working committee was also entrusted with the job of designing a questionnaire and collecting feedback from all of the member organisations. Findings of the working group would enable ARC in taking important decisions on fund management, location / role of convener & level of participation of the organisation which is taking the responsibility of hosting ARC.

The working committee would also give a complete report on how various heads of organisations feel about taking on the financial management of ARC and the committee shall also be recommending the best future action.

2: - 7 important area were identified and members of ARC have volunteered to be a part of various processes. These areas have been prioritised and it has been mutually agreed that a working document which can be adopted by the forum with complete consent of all of the members shall be prepared in a time span of six months.

A first draft - Action plan shall be presented by team leaders for each of the thrust areas on the 4th of october.

Dear All, I thought the working group had a rather more limited role of meeting heads of orgs, finding out about how they see their relationship with ARC, and what comes in the way of them hosting/covening/fund chanelling for ARC. Am I right?

the above post was in jest, I had an impression that the working group was to sit together formulate a questionnaire and then start to go to the agencies which individual members of the working committee have volunteered for, information that the WC collected would then enable people in the other groups to design their intervention
