The volunteers that make up the Task Force are key players in Lake County communities. The efforts to develop new leaders to move the Task Force are challenging and often tabled until a mutually agree upon process is identified. Efforts have included coalition sustainability training through the LCHD/CHC, strategic planning sessions, a coalition membership survey regarding effectiveness of leaders and process, and free training opportunities offered (webinars, workshops) to members.

To ensure that the coalition execute selected strategies, the members of the Task Force Leadership Team meet quarterly with committees to review strategies and process evaluation. Additionally, the entire membership annually revisits the strategic plan to be sure it follows with the logic model. This process reinforces a shared understanding of the goals, objectives and strategies of the Task Force and the roles of the membership in advancing them.
