During 2014, LPRC members and Immediate Past Chair, Donald Wink, asked Committee Chairs to re-visit the strategic plan. Action items specified by associated task forces were presented to the Executive Committee by Melanie M. Cooper on August 18, 2007 and can be found here: http://www.divched.org/CHEDarchives/strategicPlanning/DivCHED2007Strateg....
The Committee Chairs were asked to discuss the following questions with their committees:
- What has our committee done in conjunction with one or more of the action items discussed in the Division Strategic Plan Task Force reports?
- Of the items in the task force reports that have not been addressed, which might our committee best address?
- What other actions has our committee done that we should highlight for the Division membership?
- What other ideas for short and long-term activities can our committee address in order to serve the Division membership?
Committees were also asked to complete a spreadsheet. This spreadsheet is a digest of the task force recommendations with five tabs corresponding to the five areas of the strategic plan.
With the data received from various Committee Chairs, LRPC has been working in improving the draft for the strategic plan. The latest version can be found here.
For the rest of the year, LRPC, will work on improving the draft for the strategic plan and defining an action plan to move our strategic plan forward.
Finally, I am very grateful of having the unique opportunity to lead a wonderful group of committed members and to work closely with the excellent staff of the Division of Chemical Education. I would like to thank each of you for helping the LRP committee to shape a new draft for the strategic plan. To the committee members; your dedication, enthusiasm and support have been outstanding. I applaud each of you and I am sure that you will continue your support to who becomes my successor. THANKS!!
Ingrid Montes, Chair
