Strategic Planning Summit Update

from NABE

The NABE Executive Board, staff, and invited partners met in Sacramento, CA, on Sept. 14-16, 2018, to conduct a strategic planning summit with the following outcomes:
  • Strengthen and build better understanding of NABE's foundation (values, vision for the future, mission, principles), and clearly identify our organizational strategic goals/priorities to realize our 21st century organizational vision.
  • Develop a first-level action plan for achieving our 21st century strategic goals/priorities.
  • Develop a clear understanding of Board roles and responsibilities, how they connect with NABE staff roles, and implications for individual and collective action.
  • Build positive and productive relationships among the NABE organizational leadership, affiliate leadership, and partner organizations nationally and internationally that support successful implementation of NABE's strategic plan.
  • Create a continued sense of urgency, and positive energy, provide opportunities to reflect, and celebrate success.
As preparation for this summit, participants were asked to reflect on the following. Participants responses were used to design the summit content.
  • Imagine that it is now the year 2025. Your wildest dreams have come true about NABE, and what the organization has accomplished has made a transformational change in the world. What would be the headline that captures this?
  • Think about the headline you created, and the vision of NABE as a powerful, transformational organization that emerged from or that was alluded to in your headline and explanation. What would we have to believe or value in order for us to have decided that THAT (the headline) is what we thought was most important to focus on accomplishing?
