Building Blocks of a Strategic Plan – RouttCounty

Location: Bud Werner Memorial Library  – Library Hall
9-12 PM
Date: Thursday, May 19th


Nonprofit strategic planning identifies elements of a blueprint that will help organizations accomplish their goals. It requires your organization to create goals and objectives and decide how you’ll reach them. Creating your strategic plan isn’t a linear process; it’s more similar to a flow chart because each element is connected to another and leads to a unique outcome.   Before diving into a day-long retreat with your board, it is essential to work hard to ensure the most valuable use of the organization’s time. During this session, you will learn the building blocks to create a strategic plan, and you will leave better equipped to get the most out of the strategic plan process.
