March Meeting Topic:  Immigration Concerns and Issues was on list for 2018. CanDee plan/coordinate that for March?

Compass Points:  We have a proposal from Wilder Research that will need review and attention.  It was noted that the proposal included a two page insert that would address disparities.  General consensus was that there is value in renewing this project; that there is a liklihood of funding; that it fits/enhances a number of other community efforts including Cradle to Career.  It should be continued and the Steering Committee should make this the principle topic of discussion at the February 13th meeting.  

February 13 CNG Steering Committee Agenda:

 - Mission/purpose statements for CNG.....................Heidi and Al
 - Discussion of Compass Points development...........Jerome and Audrey
