Strategic plan update

CATEGORIES: Uncategorized

The LAS strategic plan subcommittees were finalized and given their charge from Dean Schmittmann. Subcommittees will develop specific objectives and performance metrics for their defined goals, and they will continue to work throughout the end of the year. The subcommittees will meet biweekly for the following two months.

The steering committee received excellent feedback during the public forums and online surveys. The feedback was given to the steering committee and subcommittees to help inform their work. Drafts of the subcommitte reports will be available for public comment in January 2017.
