SIMB President Tim Davies appointed a Presidential Committee on Strategic Planning whose goal was to update the Strategic Plan including the mission, vision, core values and goals of SIMB. Susan Bagley, Jeff Schwartz, Scott Baker, Chris Lowe, Tim and myself have been working since November on a new Strategic Plan. The Board of Directors and the SIMB committee members has reviewed and provided feedback which is reflected in the draft version included here. Our goal is to get final approval for the document at the August 6 Board Meeting at the SIMB Annual Meeting. The draft Strategic Plan will also be discussed at the SIMB Business Meeting on August 5. Once the final document is approved the committees will formulate plans and actions on how their activities will address the aspirations and goals that are outlined in the Strategic Plan.
