7:30 PM  - Zoom Meeting (see details below)

In the interest of keeping our community safe the DHCA Board would like to invite you to join a presentation and discussion of the results of Phase One of the strategic management consulting work undertaken earlier this year in a web conference meeting via Zoom. We will use the time allotted for the regularly scheduled May board meeting to present the results of this data-gathering phase and hold Q&A and discussion. We will start at 7:30 PM and plan to use the full two-hour meeting timeframe.

Terri Theisen, our consultant, will spend the first portion of the time walking through a presentation of findings; the second portion will be reserved for Q&A. To ensure all voices are heard and to manage time in the most efficient way we will accept questions via Zoom chat only.

Doug Rollins has agreed to ensure that meeting attendees are comfortable using Zoom as well as the chat feature. In this capacity he will serve as a point person before and during the meeting to offer support and training on using web conferencing and asking questions via chat. Please contact Doug Rollins at or (404) 226-4418 if you need help with Zoom. Thank you, Doug!

At or around 9:15 or 9:30 PM we will close the presentation and Q&A portion of the meeting and end the presentation. There will be a recording of the entire session uploaded to the website after the presentation for those who cannot join and/or those who would like to revisit.

We would like to have as many neighbors join us as possible, and we ask that you please distribute this information and encourage your fellow community members to attend. There are 500 seats available on the web meeting; these are available on a first-come, first-served basis. For those who cannot join, or, in the unlikely event that all seats on the Zoom meeting fill up, we will upload a recording of the meeting to the DHCA website as mentioned above.

Finally, we strongly encourage participants to log into the meeting a few minutes early to allow time for any potential troubleshooting; this will help ensure an on-time kick off.

Regarding next steps, the board will reconvene on May 27th for further discussion and to vote on moving onto the second phase of this work. Please see below for a list of proposed deliverables for this phase. If you have questions or input you would like to share, please reach out to a Board member prior to May 27th. You can find a full list of board members at

We want to thank everyone who took time to participate in this data gathering phase of our strategic

planning work. Your support and input are critical, and we look forward to gathering with you to learn

about and discuss the results.
