From Membership Survey to Strategic Planning

We asked, you responded, and we are listening. Thank you to North American members that participated in our recent SCBNA Priorities Poll.  We have seen significant change throughout 2017 with our first dedicated staff person, several new board members, and the ongoing development of an organizational work plan, centered around strategic priorities for the section.  The NA Board will meet for a two-day winter meeting in Fort Collins, CO to discuss our progress, priorities, and where we are headed in the coming years. Your input is critical in guiding us in this exercise, and we appreciate your engagement at our members meeting (ICCB July 2017) and online via the member survey.  Please mark your calendars for the next in-person opportunity at our 2018 members meeting on July 24th in Toronto, Ontario, Canada at NACCB.
