Committee Work, Minutes, and Committee Manager Login
Alignment Nashville is all about bringing the best thinking in the community to bear on issues that affect the overall wellness of Nashville’s children.
To that end, Alignment Nashville is made up of committees structured around either grade levels or health issues. The members of the committees bring diverse perspectives — small non-profit, public school, city government, public health, higher education, large non-profit, and the business community — to create the most aligned, strategic tactical plans to achieve very ambitious goals.
The committee process is what sets Alignment Nashville apart from other similar collaborative initiatives. This process, depicted below, ensures that all committee work is thoroughly planned, engages a diverse group of stakeholders representing public schools and community organizations, and is sufficiently evaluated before becoming institutionalized. Below is a review of each of the stages of the committee process.
The first step in becoming involved in an Alignment Nashville collaborative initiative is to review our current Invitations to Participate (ITPs), which provide a description of each collaborative initiative as well as examples of how your organization can participate. After reviewing the ITP, you can submit a response online to let the Alignment Nashville committee know how your organization can collaborate. More detailed instructions can be found within each ITP.
Committee members are selected by the Chairpersons of the committee based on their expertise in particular areas relevant to the committee’s mission and vision. Members are not chosen to represent their organizational interests – they are chosen for their community perspective.

Principles of Committee Work
- All committees adhere to the defined committee process and structure.
- All committees design pilot projects based on specific, measurable outcomes.
- All viewpoints are heard and valued.
- The committee process is collaborative.
- Committee outcomes must align community resources behind MNPS goals (resources are defined as personnel, programs, expertise, money, materials, space, and technology)
- Committees do not determine WHAT to accomplish; instead, committees determine HOW to accomplish what MNPS has determined is needed through its strategic planning process.
- The committee process must engage community organizations (non-profits, business, schools, colleges and universities, government agencies, students and families, and faith-based organizations)
- Committee pilot projects are designed based on data and community research.
- Participation in committee pilot projects is determined solely by the committee.
- Agendas of individuals and organizations are left at the door.
- Outcomes are based on the committee agenda.
- Committees are accountable to the Operating Board.
