On Friday, January 23, the Human Trafficking Council convened for the fourth time and hosted its first all-day Planning Retreat.
The first half of the meeting was spent covering administrative tasks. Foremost, the council welcomed two new members, Jill and Lester. For the rest of the first half of the meeting, the council voted on by-law articles, successfully passing all provisions. Next, Vice-Chair Becky Bullard presented on the Planning Committees’ three year trajectory for the Council, as well as on their recommendations for committees and task forces to be established. The committee proposed the creation of the following four tasks forces:
These committees were approved by the Council; there was concern, however, regarding the failure to include forced-labor, both within the Committees and the three-year plan.
The next Human Trafficking Council meeting will be held from 9am to 12pm on February 27, 2015, at the Jefferson County Human Services Building located at 900 Jefferson County Parkway.
