A New Year Begins with a Week of Excitement
Happy New Year. Things were quiet around here two weeks ago as staff enjoyed time with family and friends during the week leading up to the New Year, but the pace has certainly picked up since then. We’re back in the swing and just completed our “Tenth Annual Week of Excitement” during strategic planning this week.
The excitement began on Tuesday, January 12, with a full staff meeting for the day to review our progress this past year, discuss our current initiatives and then we took a long look forward toward the goals in Vision 2020. We wrote objectives by departments toward reaching those goals in the FY2011 and FY2012 plans, over the next two days and then the directors convened today for a reporting session. Preliminary objectives will go to the state association directors’ executive committee next week. At this pace, it feels as though the year will be over before we know it.
