    1. Goal for PA Account-a-bull team - Reset and clarify the role of this work/ team in fulfilling PA's vision (note that PA members will vote on this updated vision statement on 8/8) 
    2. Reflect - What worked well in the first several months of this work / what didn't work? 
    3. Focus for PA Account-a-bull team - What do we want our primary focus to be over the next year? Do we focus on specific elected bodies and/or specific types of actions (e.g., direct advocacy to electeds, community education on budgets, voter engagement on how elected are voting)? 
    4. Primary activities & organizing structures - How can we best organize the team and work in order to be sustainable?
