The Chapter Development and Administration Committee is leading an effort to review and update our strategic plan this year. This plan is very important as it is used to direct the chapter’s budget and plan of work for the next five years. The Hoosier Chapter has a strong history of developing and implementing its strategic plan. This is where you, the member, comes in hand. We need a coordinator, to help facilitate the creation of the 2016 – 2020 Strategic Plan. You do not need any prior experience. Now is the time to get involved in the Hoosier Chapter! If interested please let me know by emailing scott.wags@gmail.com

Take a look at our current plan here.
