Maintain communication with and spreadsheet of Advisers and Analysts.
- This info should be clear enough to turn over to a successor team leader, and not require them to touch base with analysts to be familiar with who they are and what each does.
Welcome New Volunteer analysts and direct them to training resources.
- Training should be on our web site, no emailing of documents should be necessary.
- Offer and provide or arrange one-on-one training if needed.
- Add new analysts to Track Their Vote
Subscribe to and monitor legislative Committee agendas for your Team’s area of interest.
Alert when crucial Committee meetings are scheduled and when there are ‘Hot’ bills (post on the OCL website).
- Make sure all “Hot” bills have been analyzed and properly reviewed
- Monitor the Bill Status Report on Track Their Vote. Bills are self-serve to analysts, but on crucial bills the team Leader must monitor the bill’s status (assigned, and published or not) and analysis to ensure correctness.
- If an analyst takes too long on a crucial bill, offer them any support they might need such as reaching out to other advisors
- If the analyst still cannot complete the bill, assign it elsewhere – to yourself if necessary.
Monitor OCL email address for your group and respond, from that address, to all questions
- We have incoming flow through to our personal accounts, but returns should all come from the @oregoncitizenslobby.org address. Again, this will make it easy for a successor team leader to take over without missing a step.
Attend OCL team leader conference calls
