Step 3 - Establish Navajo Thaw Roundtable

As we discussed during the Regional Summit, we will form the Navajo Thaw Roundtable, which will consist of one Representative from each of the ten Chapters (the nine Navajo Thaw Chapters plus Nahata Dziil).  Each Chapter should also appoint one Alternate Representative, to serve in place of the Representative, as needed.  Chapter Officials should oversee the appointment of the Representative and the Alternate, and then update the Support Team.

The Resolution template below is provided to help Chapters make official the appointment of their roundtable Representative and Alternate.

What the Roundtable Will Do

The Navajo Thaw Roundtable will convene on a quarterly basis (perhaps more frequently over the next six months) to:

  • Receive reports from the Navajo Nation, NHLCO, the Support Team and others related to Navajo Thaw developments/resources/activities/progress
  • Serve as a forum for local (Chapter-based) feedback and advice to the Support Team/NHLCO
  • Be a two-way communication to ensure teamwork and progress

Each Chapter should inform the Support Team of its selected Representative and Alternate by May 1, 2020.

Tracking Roundtable Creation Progress

Once a Chapter has appointed both its Representative and Alternate, and Chapter Officials have forwarded that information to the Support Team, that Chapter's status will be updated in the grid below.
