  1. This is really useful information. I'm sorry I missed the actual session in Paris even though I was there.

    Reading through it & thinking about how valuable this information is to our strategic planning I thought it would be great to conduct a wider assessment. I committed to leading some community strategic planning activities in the very near future at the last board meeting. By the end of the month I'll have formulated a "plan to plan" that I'll be posting. I'd like to consider conducting this analysis via a community-wide survey. What do others think?
