New Models

The implementation team of the projects and initiatives for the strengthening of the Arco Norte region within the framework of the New Models of Animation, Government and Management project gathered from June 29 – July 2 in Bogota, Colombia.

Participants included Brothers Miguel Ángel Santos Villarreal (México Occidental provincial and coordinator of the region’s provincials), Félix Roldán (Canada), Al Rivera (United States), Raúl Lara (México Occidental), Justino Gómez (México Central), Gregorio Linacero (América Central) and Carlos Alberto Rojas (Norandina). Luca Olivari served as facilitator.

This encounter’s objectives were: 

  • To strengthen integration among team participants
  • To reflect and define projects and initiatives submitted to the region’s provincial councils which gathered in Quito in March 2016
  • To define a work plan to be presented in the next encounter of provincials of Arco Norte in New York from Sept. 2 – 5.

The proposals for regional strengthening that will be presented for consideration by the provincial revolve around the following themes:

  • Realization of strategic planning of the region (people, mission and econome).
  • Developing guidelines on formation, consecrated and lay life and preparing formators
  • Cooperative development of a programme of vocational culture as well as forming a dynamic team for the region. 
  • Taking advantage of good practices of the mission and finance to obtain short-term results (quick wins).
  • Alignment of the provincial systems of management with the general administration’s New Model of Management.
  • Manage changes through communication and raising awareness  
  • To develop initiatives with a competent team and define the way of financing.

The encounter also included formation on the topic of managing changes.

After the meeting, each participant promised to inform their respective provincial and provincial council on the meeting’s scopes and fruits in order to prepare for New York’s meeting of provincials next September.
