CONECT Strategy Team

CONECT is a democratic organization. Member institutions determine the agenda and set the strategy by sending representatives to Delegates’ Assemblies held 2-4 times a year.

An elected STRATEGY TEAM meets monthly to discuss the direction of the organization, explore issue strategies, and plan major actions. The EXECUTIVE TEAM, elected from the Strategy Team , works with the Lead Organizer to manage the organization’s finances and administration.
