In April of 2015, SCAD Steering Committee identified organizational improvements that needed to be addressed and then participated in a facilitated planning retreat to identify the most important issues for sustainability. 

The first Task Force (Sustainability) finished its work in January 2016. Their work and final report can be found under the Sustainability TF tab. A second Task Force (Funding) was appointed in April 2016. Their task is to figure out a plan to sustain funding for the Sullivan County Anti-Drug Coalition.

Ultimately, sustainability means having adequate resources to intervene at the community-level and maintaining those resources long enough to see community-level outcomes.


  • Task Force Assessment of Process
    • Diversity of group
    • Time to focus, move forward slowly/thoughtfully
    • Clear charge - 4 long term BIG issues
    • People committed to task
    Con (sort of):
    • Struggled with process, wanted some decisions to be made faster (identified by speaker as a personality issue)
      • Possible solution: create some ground rules about speaking up when it is time to move on
