In 2019, CYPN achieved foundational milestones in ‘turbo-charging’ our impact as a community collective. Together, we:

developed a CK CYPN ‘Connector Team’ which acts as support for the Chair and an Advisory Team for the CYPN

engaged CYPN Leaders in discussions on their ‘vision’, readiness for change, priority themes, and high-level range of options for network models

identified 4 priority themes which create a ‘framework’ for the key ingredients of what matters to the CYPN:

1. Family Voice   2. Equity & Access   3. Partnerships & Innovation   4. Data & Knowledge Management

CYPN Meetings

Generally, CYPN meets on the 3rd Wednesday of each month. We have implemented a new Meeting Calendar to help keep everyone informed of and prepared for our upcoming topics. We have also designed a document, the CYPN Presentation Template, to aid our members or guests in presenting ideas, projects, etc. to the team, and create discussions resulting in actionable items.
