Meeting Briefing Note

briefing noteSubmitted: October 17th, 2009

The briefing note assignment is intended to expose new students at Ryerson to the municipal political process by attending a council or executive meeting within the Greater Toronto Area. The only limitation to the meeting was that a decision must be made — for example, a community information session would not have been valid.

The purpose of the assignment was to design, develop and deploy a briefing note — or a summary — of the proceedings to a “person of interest” that could not attend the specified meeting, but must know the proceedings and the outcomes in order to conduct their job.

I took some liberties with the writing — assuming that the recipient was well known to me professionally.
