The Strategic Planning committee met in July in the Dallas area, for a 2 day session with national facilitator Jim DeLizia. 25 committee members participated in very detailed and powerful planning sessions. With guidance from our facilitator, we developed a Strategic Framework and a 2013 to 2015 Strategic Plan targeting specific issues, objectives and strategies to accomplish results in 5 key areas:

  • Chapter Support,
  • Leadership Development,
  • Communication,
  • Liaison to the Industry,
  • Governance and Operations.

Serving on the Strategic Planning Committee is a great experience shared by a diverse committee of members to further develop, educate and grow the value of Women’s Council membership. It is an amazing experience to see so many members working together, to see an idea develop into an objective, to see the completed plan, and then work with our members to put the plans in place.  The detailed document is available on our website,, so that all members may see the objectives and solutions we have established.

I am excited that we will have a good foundation in place to continue successful plans for our 2013 Strategic Planning Committee.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve.
