July 9th Affinity Call: Strategic Planning

June 28, 2013

It’s finally summer, the time many Chapter boards pull together and talk about goals, objectives, strategies and tactics….not necessarily in that order!

If you have suffered the joys and pains of strategic planning in your Chapter (or other organization) and lived to tell the tale, we want to hear from you!

Join your District colleagues Tuesday, July 9 from Noon to 1 p.m. (Central) to talk about what has worked for you, what pitfalls to be wary of, how to prepare for a successful session(s) and other tales from the challenging (and rewarding) world of strategic planning.

Contact Jim Streed, APR [jgstreed@integrysgroup.com] for call-in details.
