Strategic Planning Committee Minutes: August 25, 2015

Minutes of Strategic Planning Committee

Tuesday, August 25, 2015, 1 p.m.


Present: John Bohannon, Leslie Lassetter, Celina Houlne

Meeting was called to order at 1:10 pm.


The committee discussed:

  • long range vs. strategic planning. It was decided that the board must approve the concept of this committee:  long range, i.e., to continue with present plans and mission; or strategic, i.e., to implement something new and different; or both combined.
  • A survey of stakeholders based on present mission statement.

The committee’s question for the board:  What needs to be done—develop some long range goals to improve our current operations, or, develop a strategic plan to take the RFPL in some new directions over the next three years?

The committee advises:  a survey of a sample of stakeholders over the next two months based on RFPL mission statement to determine perceived strengths and weaknesses.
