Board Review of the Strategic Plan
Due to the volume and complexity of the strategic plan, the review by the Board happened over 3 separate sessions. The first two were retreats, which supported open discussion and debate without requiring a formal decision, or even driving to consensus. The last meeting was a regular meeting at which time the Board formally approved the strategic plan. The notes and links below give you access to the various slides and exhibits, as well as summaries of the ensuing Board discussions.
