"The strategic planning process MAYES | WILSON & ASSOCIATES designed provided an opportunity to engage the other Chapters, our volunteers and our supporters. We now have a plan to guide the organization for the future. As the Executive Director, I have used the plan to create my annual work plan and I’m working with the board committees to create their annual plan. All of this will keep us headed toward our strategic goals."
