CHPP Stages
Stage IIa

Stage IIa -- Establish your Steering Committee


3. The one or two initial planners invite others from the community (not more than five) who are keenly interested in community health on the specific issue to join them to form the local Steering Committee to address the need or goal.

4. You may want to hold your first Steering Committee meeting informally over lunch. Remember to meet with an open agenda to discuss, listen, and respond to everyone. Everyone on the steering committee will have their own agenda and it is important to
keep turf and community “politics” out of this equation. Keep the focus on the goal, however it is defined right now. Explain to the group that the CHPP process is a new adventure to solving concerns and to attempt this new model, some old thought will need to be “checked at the door”.

While it would be terrific to move through this part rapidly, do not be tempted. Folks need time to reflect, dream a little, and to exchange ideas. Be positive that together you can succeed, however, do not rush the process.

Stage II Exercise 1: List eight people who you believe should be on your steering committee to address the issue you identified in the Stage I exercise. If you do not know a person’s name but feel it is essential to have a person with a particular skill or from a particular agency, business, or government entity, list that information. Include, phone, address, e-mail, and job title if known.

5. When the Steering Committee meets:

• listen,
• get to know each other,
• form a strong resolve,
• explore potential,
• give preliminary thought to what campaign the community might undertake, and
• compile a list of the key people in the community who you think should participate in the CHHP process and be the on-going body for advancing the ideas.

6. Discuss with your Steering Committee the health campaign the community might undertake (see functional definition in box below). Remember each person will have an agenda, including you. The goal of the participatory planning model is to energize and mobilize a community (perhaps even a community within a community, see box). Once energized, other goals can be pursued using the same model. Do not get bogged down on what you do – concentrate this first go round on how you do it and on achieving a community success.

WHAT IS “COMMUNITY”?
(structural and functional definitions)

A. geographic area with boundaries and usually a name
(e.g., Sutton, Pine Grove, Charleston). structural definition

B. individuals with shared characteristics, interests,
goal (s), values, sense of identity, norms, and/or
communication.
functional definition

CHPP focuses on and builds functional “community”


Green and Kreuter, 1999, pg. 263

 

Stage II Exercise 2: You invited all eight individuals listed in the previous exercise to be on the steering committee. Sadly, but not unexpectedly, only three to five people truly share your interest and enthusiasm and accept your invitation to be on the steering committee. Brainstorm with your committee. Who else might serve as a catalyst to form the ultimate steering committee? Come up with 8 additional names of people who might pitch in to get the job done. If you have a job title, phone, address, or email, include it here.

7. A discrete task of the Steering Committee is to develop a one page concept paper (planning document) that will be used to create flyers, posters, and for making personal invitations to the CHPP sessions.

8. As Step 1 in this task, let’s first take a little time to dream again.

Stage II Exercise 3: Again, as a “begin with the end in mind” exercise, assume your organizing process is a success. In the space below, write a news release announcing the project you ultimately hope will be initiated or adapted through the CHPP process. Sometimes the direction of the group is guided by overwhelming need, a funding source, steering committee vision, etc. Go ahead, dream a bit and write that press release.
