Committees
We initially formed 5 subcommittees based on our priority areas - Prevention Education and Stigma, Access to Care and Supportive Services, Community Building with PLWH and Allies, Data-Driven Policy and Advocacy, and Centering Smaller Cities and Rural Communities. Now that we have drafted our strategies for each of these focus areas, we may need to shift toward new committees focused on the work that comes next. Based on conversations from our last steering committee and core team meetings, we would like to propose the following suggestions and see what you think.

In place of our five committees, we would like to replace them with five new committees including (some retained from previous committee structure):

- Access to Care and Smaller Cities (preference for chair to be someone outside NO/BR): This committee will oversee activities outlined in the Access to Care and Supportive Services and Smaller Cities and Rural Communities sections of the Get Loud Louisiana work plan. They will continue to make recommendations for improving access and linkage to care and other support services (including mental health care, treatment for substance abuse, housing and transportation assistance, case management, etc.) that facilitate retention in care and greater health and wellbeing for PLWH. They will pay special attention to the unique needs of those living outside of larger cities (specifically, Baton Rouge and New Orleans) and how strategies and activities required to address prevention, education, support PLWH and access to services may differ from those utilized in more metropolitan areas.

- Community Engagement and Leadership (chair should be a PLWH): This committee will in large part oversee implementation of activities outlined in the Community Building with PLWH and Allies section of the plan. They will work on increasing engagement and ownership of PLWH in activities related to ending the HIV epidemic at all levels, collaboration between PLWH, advocates, and non-traditional partners (including faith-based organizations and other community-based organizations and groups). This group will also work on capacity building and supporting economic and academic opportunities for PLWH both within the field of HIV/AIDS as well as beyond.

- Coalition Building and Advocacy: This committee will focus on outreach and relationship building with non-traditional partners, building a larger movement, and working with partners toward common goals including advocacy efforts, legislative campaigns, etc.

- Monitoring and Evaluation: This committee will track progress on implementation of activities and progress on meeting our objectives, review and analyze data (as needed), support preparation of information to be shared back to the community, and will support grant/funding opportunity tracking. (Funding opportunities will be directed to partners identified to implement projects to apply for funds.)

- Public Relations and Marketing: This committee will focus on the marketing of our plan, as well as the development of media campaigns and communications for diverse audiences ranging from community groups and non-traditional partners to providers and media contacts.

Core Team Structure
The Core Team will be the driving force behind GLL planning and oversight. This team will anchor us to our mission and keep the rest of the planning body and process on track. As such, membership on the Core Team requires a higher level of time and commitment. Core Team members are required to attend monthly Steering Committee and Core Team meetings, as well as additional planning meetings as scheduled/needed. By signing onto this role, members are committing to a one-year term with full participation in committee meetings and assigned duties. Core Team members are expected to miss no more than two meetings per year, and must notify the Core Team that they will be unable to attend whenever possible. If an absence is expected, a Core Team member may send a proxy in their place, with notice to the Team. Those who demonstrate they are unable to meet this commitment will be asked to step down and the position will be filled by the remaining members. Because of the higher level of commitment and in order to reduce the likelihood of scheduling conflicts and attrition, the Core Team will be limited in number. However, all Steering Committee members have equal decision-making power to Core Team members.

  For 2021 - the Core Team will consist of:
- Community members (minimum of 2)*
- Subcommittee chairpersons (5)
- Health Department staff (1)
- Ryan White Part A representatives (2=one from New Orleans and one from Baton Rouge)
- Ryan White Part B representative (1)
- Ryan White Part F (AETC) representative (1)
- CDC-funded Prevention representative
- Hepatitis C/Drug User Health representative
- Women with a Vision staff (1)

Would you be interested in joining our Core Team representing any of the above roles? *
Which role(s) would you be interested in?
Our next steps include conducting outreach to potential partners we would like to work more closely with as we move into implementation (including as part of our Steering and Subcommittees). Do you have recommendations for individuals/agencies/CBOs/other partners that we should reach out to? Please include the name (of the person or agency), as well as a contact person and contact details (email, phone and/or address) if you have it.
Anything else you'd like to share with us or suggest as we move forward in this process?
Thank you!
