Project Action Teams

Each year, the FPP Steering Committee develops ad hoc committees to carry out the necessary action steps to accomplish each project of the strategic plan for the upcoming year.


Members are volunteer partners from all sectors of the community who choose to implement the identified strategies and action plan.


Each Action Team elects a chair (co-chairs if desired) and a recording secretary who will serve for the upcoming year. 

  • Chairperson(s) is responsible to set agendas for meetings, orient new members and ensure a collaborative atmosphere at meetings, facilitate meetings and coordinate the work of the team. 
  • Recording secretary is responsible to track activities and expenses of the Action Team as well as in-kind hours accumulated by volunteers.

Meeting Schedule

Action Team meetings are scheduled by vote of the participating members.
