Programming Evaluations

All internal and external state program areas shall be included in the three (3) year review process. A new area shall be added in Phase 1 (Implementation). Each internal and external area is assigned a phase number, (i.e., Phase 1, Phase 2 or Phase 3). Each phase is a one year period corresponding with the fiscal year of the Minnesota Women of Today. Each program follows the process indicated for that phase and at the end of the fiscal year rolls to the next phase in the model.

  1. Phase 1-Implementation: Implement any recommendations and/or eliminate programs or portions of programs.
  2. Phase 2-Extension: Continue the program as it stands with any recommendations carried forward to Phase 3. With limited exceptions, recommendations will not be considered until Phase 3. This phase allows the organization to look at the program as it stands and not change it in any major ways.
  3. Phase 3-Evaluation: Evaluate the programming area and finalize the recommendations to be presented at Winter State. Included in the evaluation process should be the current program manager, the previous program manager, the Executive Director, State President, the appropriate Vice President, and the appropriate past Vice President and Chairman of the Board. All approved changes would take effect at the start of the next fiscal year (Phase 1), remain in effect through Phase 2 and then be reviewed in Phase 3.

This allows any changes a two-year trial to see if they are needed in this program area.

The 3 Programming Areas being evaluated at this time are Records & Recognition; Success; and Women's Wellness. Click here to access the forms.

Start the Year Right!

Don't forget to complete the following forms to make sure MNWT has the appropriate information for your chapter and district for 2018-2019!

MNWT Chapter Survey

Greetings chapters! I am so very excited for this year. I know that each and every one of you will continue to do amazing things in your communities. We are trying something this year with attempting to gather some information. In my MNJOTS CIP you will find a paper copy of the chapter assessment, but here is a link for the MNWT Chapter Survey. We realize that this is a long survey, but we are hoping to gather information to help you better. While we are asking that all chapter Presidents fill out this form, we would love to have the feedback from chapter members as well. We would like to have these back prior to President/State Delegate Retreat to use as a training tool. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions about this.
