WINGS Steering Committee

Florida WINGS Steering Committee

Steering committees in other WINGS grant-funded pilots ranged from five to six knowledgeable individuals representing key partners to a broader group of stakeholders.

For grant compliance, the Florida WINGS Steering Committee must:

  • understand the WINGS concept and have the will to launch a WINGS group;
  • conduct a process to select initial priority issues;
  • identify stakeholder groups and individual representatives;
  • plan a carefully structured, facilitated, interactive agenda for meetings;
  • evaluate and plan for additional meetings; and
  • plan for and seek funding to sustain WINGS.
