The purpose of the Long-Range Planning Committee (LRPC) is to monitor internal and external trends and to develop plans that will allow the Division to evolve and adapt to changes in technology, science and the needs and expectations of Division members.
The LRPC met in San Francisco on Sunday, August 10, 2014. Our discussion was focused on the strategic plan for the Division.
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.
The LRPC reviewed and collated the data that is summarized here.
