Status update on the Living Assessment wiki

     The information contained on the Living Assessment continues to improve.  Several stakeholders have begun to add data and information to several of the chapters.  I'm a bit surprised though that several others have yet to engage.  We knew going into this that the use of a new approach would present challenges.  Maybe a little insight from my perspective will help improve the comfort level for using the site.       Our…See More

"I like the cleaner menus and organization.  Assume we'll clean up the Living Assessment link once we get the wording for the intermediate page.  Good job."

Social Values

Social values define what's important to us - what we believe is right or wrong, good or bad. Key to our dialog is an understanding of these concepts: values, interests and positions. This group will explore how these concepts affect forest planning.

Yes, you all did a great job.  Since what you are proposing is so new (to us) and different than our "business as usual", it will take some processing time for folks to think about and digest it.  Some strategic follow-up would be good though as there are so many day-to-day pressing things that it's easy to forget about what I talked about yesterday!  So some one-on-one follow-up with folks would be a great way to get additional feedback on the concept and your implementation blueprint.  It would be great to use the site for some of that discussion.
