Strategic Plan Open House Update - Webcasts, Next Sessions

To assure that the UCAR Strategic Plan fully reflects the talents, ideas, and vision of our organization, we need staff members to provide constructive feedback on how and where the plan might be improved. Thanks to all of you who have taken time to attend one or more of the Open House sessions so far.

We've made recordings so that everyone who missed a session can still be included in the discussion. I encourage you to listen to the recordings for goals that interest you, to add your thoughts online, and to find time on your calendar to attend at least one of the upcoming open houses. The live sessions have been thoughtful, spirited, and valuable. Thanks for everyone's contributions thus far, and please keep them coming.
