CoC training school
According to Georgia Wever the first Leadership Training School ever organized by the Committees of Correspondence took place during July 1998 , at a woodland location in upstate New York. For almost a week, the 24 participants - who came from Northern California, Chicago, North Carolina, South Carolina, and the New York metropolitan area - "talked, challenged, sang, learned, swam, disagreed, feasted, danced, camped, and asked questions."
The curriculum was planned by a committee composed of Mael Apollon, Robin Busch, Leslie Cagan, Pat Fry, Bobby Greenberg, Mel Pritchard, Roque Ristorucci and Zach Robinson. In the follow-up to the Leadership Training School, the curriculum planning committee became the National Education and Literature Committee. It is co-chaired by Bob Greenberg and Mel Pritchard.
Living Wage Campaign
In 1998 Zach Robinson, CoC NEC member and chair of the Living Wage Committee, summarized the work that has taken place to date in his report to the NCC. He noted that the living wage campaign was created to give the CofC a political direction by focusing on a single campaign. Initial work was centered in a few local chapters, and then expanded as possible. Robinson argued that it is time to expand the focus by helping to initiate a campaign for national legislation for a living wage. The committee has already drafted a letter to be sent to other organizations outlining our concept of such legislation, combined with some details of how it could be enacted. There has been some contact with a legislative aide who will work on putting the proposal into acceptable legislative language.
