Committee/networking and DB design

I would like to assemble a list of all Boards, committees, formal or
informal groups on which you participate in AS A REPRESENTATIVE of the
Clearinghouse. If you hold any office or special duty, please indicate
it. Also, please give a short list of group activities or requests which
generated work (your’s or someone else’s) at the Clearinghouse.

This information will be most valuable in our database design effort.

Simon, in reply to your recent message (March 22, 1989) I’m sending
along a list that I did for Bryan (and his response) about the networks
Peg & I belonged to as of July ’88. As well, following changes:
I represent Bryan at the U. of Toronto Health Promotion External
Advisory Committee.
I am chairperson of the Ont. Public Health Assoc. Health Promotion
Division’s “Liaison/Communications Committee” which generates LOTS of
work for me at OPCH, and some benefits. For example:
– workshop on health promotion & networking in Stratford Jan. 25
organized by the L/C Committee, drew 23 people from over Perth,
Waterloo, Huron and Oxford counties, took about 20 hours prep. time and
maillists & FAXs & long distance calls from me; and ended with 5
requests from participants, new additions to maillist & 6 new progs.
– workshop on same topic to occur in Belleville & I’m prime mover so
lots of work in mail, phone, fax and writing
I represent OPCH in a new “Health Promotion Research Network Steering
Committee”. It is generating work for OPCH, with possible funding from
Health and Welfare to do survey of h.p. researchers & set up dbase.
That’s the short list. I do a fair bit for Ont. Public Hlth Assoc. in
networking, workshop planning, (using maillist, newsprog, OPHA dbase)
and consultation, plus typing minutes for many meetings.
