Upcoming Workshops

The Basics of Strategic Planning
October 25, 2014, 9am–noon
Mady Centre for the Performing Arts
“We always plan too much and always think too little” (Joseph Schumper). Strategic planning is a planning tool but it also a process that enables our stakeholders to think, plan and then act together. It’s a “road map” that moves us towards the things that are most important to our community organizations while building relationships and team. This workshop invites participants to learn about an inclusive method of strategic planning. Participants will leave with the tools and mindsets required to embark on a successful strategic planning journey.
