NESEA's 2017 Strategic Plan

This five year strategic plan reflects eight months of intensive work by NESEA’s Board of Directors and Staff to identify strategic goals and actions toward fulfilling NESEA’s mission. We are proud to report that this process involved an unprecedented degree of collaboration between the Board and Staff. It is the first time the organization has developed a strategic plan with such extensive feedback from Board, Staff, and Stakeholders. We are optimistic that the inclusive and transparent process will lead to greater success in implementing the plan.

Strategic Plan Update & Working Group

We've started the strategic planning process for 2022 and are delighted to be working with a team of dedicated NESEA Members to engage stakeholders and do big picture thinking about the next 5 years.

Over the summer, with the support of the Strategic Planning Working Group, we were able to collect survey responses from 132 people and hold five open focus groups attended by 62 members of our community. NESEA's Board of Directors is now using these data to draft new strategic priorities to guide our next 5 years.
