The Strategic Plan was publicly launched on May 5, following months of collaborative meetings, research and evolution. Instead of slowing for the summer, execution begins immediately—with the assembly of an implementation team that will include captains for every Strategic Plan goal, trained project managers to keep those goals aligned and on track and support members who will generate ideas, further refine action steps and ultimately make the plan a reality.
