LET - Strategic Planning
November 26 (9:00am) - 30, 2018 (4:00pm) (2 spaces available)

Locals work with staff to put together a strategic planning session. Strategic planning is a collaborative way to set achievable and measurable goals for your local. It will help you determine what will be implemented over a matter of weeks and years so your local can evolve and grow to serve your membership better. It is also a way to build capacity and activism within your local. This is not an off the shelf workshop. Each situation is different and requires a tailor made approach.
