This message was sent via email directly to county council members, county staff, regional directors, and program specialists.
On July 1 we completed our Structured for Success process and launched the transformation of our organization. Now it is time to look back on the past three months and review our progress.
I encourage you to complete the Two-Way Scorecard Communication Tool online survey. The survey covers the first quarter, July-September 2020, and will take about 10-20 minutes to complete. Please answer the questions based on your own, individual experience and complete the survey by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, October 15.
Any council members who are unable to complete the survey electronically should contact their regional director to receive a hard copy to complete and return to Andrea Nelson at 2280 Beardshear, 515 Morrill Road, Ames, IA 50011. All mailed surveys must be received by October 15.
A Quarter 1 Report will be published in an aggregated format for each county. Counties will be able to review all scores and comments for further analysis through CyBox in a private folder for each county. A statewide report also will be published.
The Two-Way Scorecard Communication Tool was developed with county staff and council input and is fully supported by ISU Extension and Outreach and the Iowa Extension Council Association. We are committed to improving our communication and accountability by providing formal feedback on a quarterly basis. The scorecard is not a performance review of any individual; rather, it’s a check-in on how we all are doing as partners. This is a continuing process that will strengthen our organization and our partnership so we can better serve Iowans and build a #STRONGIOWA. Thank you for your support.
John D. Lawrence
Vice President for Extension and Outreach
