SRLS Strategic Planning Retreat- Update
The Strategic Planning Retreat (SPR) team worked together at the retreat in February to developed seven specific strategies for our three goals that can started in the next 6 months to help the ACS-SR Section achieve its goals. We also identified the need for a Special Operational Strategy regarding communications. Each strategy has a Champion from the SPR team who is responsible for guiding the strategy towards completion.
The SPR Team is making progress on getting our strategies off the ground for each of the 3 goals. We are looking for ACS-SR members to get involved with the local section and become members of the team for several of the goals/strategies.
The following Strategy Champions are looking for volunteers to be part of the team that helps with the planning and direction of the various activities. Please contact the Champion if you wish to get involved!
