NCEMA Strategic Plan
In January of 2015, our Association began a strategic planning process to evaluate the current role of the Association and to identify short term and long term goals to improve our organization’s value to our membership. This process included two open surveys to gain feedback and a strategic planning workshop that involved the NCEMA Executive Committee, the Strategic Planning Committee and all committee chairs. Then; during the 2015 Fall Conference; the Strategic Plan (see attached document) was approved by the Association's "General Membership."
The approved Strategic Plan contained specific objectives that were assigned to the various committees. These committees then met and identified multiple tasks they would pursue to implement their assigned objectives……which they are currently working to complete. In fact, some of the identified tasks have already been accomplished; while others may take a year (or more) to finalize.
In March 2017, a second strategic planning workshop was conducted………again comprised of members of the NCEMA Executive Committee, the “ad hoc” Strategic Planning Committee and all committee chairs……in order to identify any needed program changes, enhancements or re-focus.
