Project Description
In response to the COVID crisis, the seafood industry has pulled together to develop a formal Massachusetts Seafood Collaborative. The mission of the Collaborative is “to improve the collaboration and networking of the Massachusetts commercial fishing industry stakeholders to identify and take advantage of opportunities for increased government, institutional, direct to consumer, and retail purchasing opportunities.” Federico assisted in the consolidation of the Collaborative’s governance structure, funding structure, and strategy for a top-priority initiative. More specifically, he put together a ‘pitch deck’ with a draft of the following items relevant to the Collaborative: context and problem statement, mission statement, goals and objectives, opportunities, and funding sources. It is missing details for the “major initiative” and a concrete action plan. He also drafted a preliminary version of the Collaborative’s bylaws and assisted in developing a draft of the Collaborative’s top-priority initiative to help the seafood industry benefit from state and federal grants and contracts.
