In April 2017, the association will begin working on its second strategic plan. The first strategic plan was in effect from 2011 through 2016, and with a new board in place, there is no better time to craft the vision for the organization for the coming years!
The strategic planning will be facilitated by two representatives of the Texas Historical Commission. Emily Koller is a planner in the agency’s Community Heritage Development Division – Texas Main Street program and has facilitated strategic planning for communities within that capacity. Susan Shore is a program specialist with the Community Heritage Development Division – Texas Heritage Tourism program and she conducted strategic planning for all THC Heritage Tourism Trails. Both are highly qualified to facilitate the process and the planning will take place over a two-day period during our April board meeting.
The strategic plan will be reviewed by the board in July and finalized by our annual meeting in October. It will be in effect for five years from its date of acceptance. Stay tuned as we work toward our next stage of development!
