News from the Archdruid, Late Summer/Winter Solstice 2018

Greetings!

I wanted to give you the details of some of the items in front of the Mother Grove recently. A select committee of Mother Grove members is working through the SWOT Analysis that was completed earlier this year. We are currently working through that work and will report our findings as they become available.

We are reviewing the appointment process and hope to have a finalized policy available soon.

The Mother Grove is looking at various items on the website that may be outdated and/or have wrong addresses for the ADF Office. There have been some very preliminary discussions about establishing a permanent office location. Currently, the office address changes whenever the office manager changes. This was a non-issue for many years during the tenure of the late Hugh Hampton, but the address has changed twice since then and it might be best to find a way to allow it to remain stable indefinitely.

We are looking for updates on the new ADF Public website  and aer hopeful to see its launch very soon. We will soon be putting out a call for a Project Manager to manage the new ADF Public and Member website initiatives and look forward to posting that position in the next few days. After the project manager is selected, we will begin identifying the critical components of the existing website and planning for their migration to a new website.

The ADF Mother Grove Annual Retreat will once again be help in Toledo, Ohio on the first full weekend of December. Our next Mother Grove meeting will be held on Wednesday 12 September at 8PM.

Remember that there are two ADF Festivals this month: Midnight Flame Festival in Bellaire, Michigan and the Rocky Mountain Retreat near Denver, Colorado. If you can attend, please do so.

Blessings,

Jean (Drum) Pagano

Archdruid, ADF
