We are excited to share information about logistical changes for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Continuum of Care (CoC). Beginning August 7, 2020, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg CoC will modify the way we communicate updates to the CoC Email Distribution List. Currently, all CoC-related information is forwarded as soon as it is received. While we want to ensure that you have timely and relevant information that could affect your program, we also want to ensure we are respectful of your time, attention, and email inboxes. Therefore, we are transitioning all CoC-related communication to the following formats:
- CoC Weekly Digest will be emailed each week, on Fridays. The CoC Weekly Digest will include all information that has previously been forwarded as individual emails. The CoC Weekly Digest compiles all of the CoC emails, information, and updates into one dedicated email. Organizations and/or individuals can send information to be forwarded to the CoC Distribution List to CharMeckCoC@mecknc.gov by 12:00pm each Thursday in order to be included in that week’s Friday CoC Weekly Digest. The first CoC Weekly Digest will be sent on August 7.
- Monthly CoC Update will be posted each month on the CoC Blog, and sent as part of that week’s CoC Weekly Digest. The CoC Monthly Update will include CoC 101 Education; CoC Committee and Workgroup updates; feature new CoC organizations and/or individuals; and share any other CoC-related announcements. The first CoC Monthly Update will be posted and included in the CoC Weekly Digest on August 28.
- Time-sensitive CoC Emails will continue to be sent as soon as they are received. This includes any email regarding emergent or time-sensitive announcements, particularly as related to funding or other resources.
We are hopeful that these changes will keep you and your organization connected to the important work of the CoC, while also establishing an improved communications process.
