On Thursday, January 14th, the IFDANE board meet to conduct a strategy meeting for 2016. The meeting helped shape focus and goals for the coming year based on last year’s focus on re-examining the value of the organization to it’s members. The strategy meeting developed a mission statement that will provide a unified message and act as consistent guide in addressing some of the concerns presented by members and sponsors. In 2016 watch for a concerted effort to improve the groups education & mentor ship programs, a significant philanthropy effort, and more education that appeals to a wider audience. Much discussion centered around how to provide real value to membership and sponsors. We are driving towards providing more in depth events while continuing to drive costs down for membership.
As always comments and questions are always welcome.
