Supporting Work Groups
This group is responsible for ensuring consistency in both the appearance and the content of OFPC messaging. It will communicate internal policy and processes as well as external outreach and engagement efforts. It conveys policy issues and requests from external organizations to the appropriate OFPC work group for response and ensures that the response keeps within the framework of OFPC communications guidelines.
This group will identify and pursue funding sourcing for the operation of the OFPC, and will also study funding and financing options to support the implementation of our policy proposals.
The role of the policy advocacy group will be to consolidate recommendations from primary workgroups into the OFPC advocacy plan; keep full council updated as to the landscape of policy ad scope of impact OFPC advocacy has on policy landscape. At least one member from each primary will sit on the Policy Advocacy workgroup.
