Remote

This is a remote assignment. The Cook County Board typically holds most of its committee meetings back-to-back on the Tuesday/Wednesday, to discuss and make recommendations on proposed items before they go to a full board vote on Thursday. For this assignment you will document the following meetings currently scheduled for 2/8/2022:

  • 11:05 a.m.: Finance Subcommittee on Litigation
  • 11:30 a.m.: Finance Subcommittee on Workers’ Compensation
  • 12 p.m.: Veterans Committee
  • 1:30 p.m.: Legislation and Intergovernmental Relations Committee

You can watch the meetings live-stream at https://www.cookcountyil.gov/service/watch-live-board-proceedings. We do not expect you to prepare in-depth for each meeting but it is a good idea to be familiar with each committee’s responsibilities and 1-2 key agenda items.

Note: Sometimes the meeting schedule changes so it’s a good idea to double check the schedule the morning of at https://cook-county.legistar.com/Calendar.aspx. Also note that Cook County Board members will be meeting earlier in the morning on Forest Preserves matters (on the same live-stream link) and sometimes that meeting runs long. If that happens, you are not expected to document preserves-related matters (we have another set of Documenters assigned to cover them), but we will count that time toward your total assignment hours.
