Webinar 3:  Your Board and Your Strategic Plan | Thursday, August 13th, 11:00 a.m.  –  Noon

Mission: Where we are going.  Strategic Plan: The roadmap for getting there.

A strategic plan is a tool that a board uses to keep their agency and staff on course.  The staff manages the journey.  They decide the details of the trip. 

Board members and staff have important and distinct responsibilities, and problems usually occur when responsibilities are confused. 


This webinar will review many of the structures and concepts that can help board members successfully achieve their mission.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand your board’s value, role and responsibilities.
  • Learn your strategic plan’s value for keeping all stakeholders in their lane and helping everyone stay focused on the mission.
  • Review pitfalls and precautions for boards and strategic planning.
