Among other items, we heard from the ad hoc committee established last November to consider, “Where do we want to be in five years?” The committee, which has met several times via Zoom, continued their deliberations after the board meeting, on Sunday afternoon and Monday. We thank them for their energies and wisdom as they work to provide the background and a framework for the visioning process. The October Board meeting will devote a two-day retreat to discussion of this question.
Several chapters have asked themselves where we will be in five years and have provided input to the Board. If your chapter has not yet had this discussion, consider using the Easy Meeting, “Visioning the Affiliates,” in the Sept/Oct 2017 NSFA. We all will be facing the challenges presented by our evolving world.
