Building our own infrastructure
Saturday was time well spent. About 20 partners plus our tireless director, Lisa, spent 3.5 hours planning for SVP Cincy's future. We dreamed, we envisioned, we learned the difference between dreaming (hard) and planning (easier). In the end, we developed consensus around 4 strategic priorities for 2011 which you'll be hearing more about at our annual all-partner meeting on March 2. It was a high energy, highly interactive session. Many thanks to Madeleine Ludlow for spearheading the strategic planning team. Thanks also to Lisa and the partners who could make it for a really fun and productive Saturday morning. For SVP is to become sustainable long into the future, we need to build this kind of planning into our agenda more often.
