Divide the group into handfuls of people (4-5). Ask them to:
In the large group, on newsprint, list the four projects each group suggested, including dated/deadlines. (Combine very similar items into one item, with the consent of the groups who generated the ideas. But make sure not to combine too many things into one item, so as to overwhelm a potential project chairperson.)
Next, ask for volunteers and nominees (make sure nominees are willing before writing their names on the newsprint) who would be willing to head up any of the items listed. Affix their names next to the project and dates. Any project without a chair is eliminated from consideration.
Next, anyone who wants to “champion” or speak up for the project may do so before the vote.
Next, hand out ballots for members to vote on the THREE projects they would most like to see the organization do, assigning 3 points to their favorite, two to their second favorite and one to their third. List them by Roman Numeral.
