Strategic Planning Committee STG

Strategic Planning Committee STG

Last fall, a Special Task Group was appointed to begin an in-depth strategic planning process for SCP.  Though strategic planning has been carried out several times in the past, the previous efforts often involved only the executive board.  The goal with the current process is to build on past planning and attempt to engage all SCP members, as well as additional stakeholders, in this process.  A consulting firm that specializes in strategic planning has been retained, and the STG is working closely with this firm to gather data and move the process forward.  Telephone interviews to gather input are being conducted with approximately 30 people representing many different segments of SCP.  In addition, an online survey will be sent to all SCP members in order to gather their impressions of our organization and their input about a wide variety of topics.  We urge everyone to participate in the survey.  Two days before APA, an all-day planning retreat will be held in San Francisco which will involve approximately 50 people representing a wide-range and diverse group of SCP members who will be tasked with carrying out the strategic plan.  The goal of the retreat will be to move toward putting in place a strategic plan that can be carried out over the next several years.
