The Steering Committee has overall responsibility for managing the Scorecard. This committee selects metrics, reviews and approves Scorecard website content, and drafts reports prepared by staff. The committee drafts initial targets for consideration by the Leadership Roundtable (see below). The Steering Committee meets on a regular basis.
This body will meet twice a year to set community targets and discuss community-building strategies and priorities. The Roundtable may include:
- The Chair of the Board of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh
- The Federation’s President/CEO
- Rabbis, agency presidents and executives, and congregational presidents
- Civic, philanthropic, academic, and cultural leaders
- Representatives of grassroots organizations
The Steering Committee works with the Federation’s planning commissions to organize working groups, drawing on members of the Leadership Roundtable and planning commission volunteers. Some working groups focus on particular impact areas where Scorecard results suggest a need for greater attention (e.g., strengthening Jewish life in the suburbs). Other working groups focus on particular action areas (e.g., using Scorecard results to guide marketing efforts).
