ICA board, staff, and volunteers are
welcoming spring of 2016 with new
commitments for the future of ICA. From
March 28-April 2, ICA leaders were directing
their energy towards strategic planning.
The spring archives sojourners started their week off with an action plan for the next 18 months of work. Their goal is to focus the work of the archives to be most relevant to present-day community practitioners both at the ICA and in the social change community in general. Their plan aims to address the necessary human assets and financial resources to sustain the archives for longterm use.
The archives team joined with ICA board and staff to close out the week with a ToP strategic planning process. Board and staff had spent months planning for the process through conducting ICA stakeholder interviews, finely crafting the focus question, and coordinating the flow of the weekend. The weekend’s work resulted in a strategic plan that was generated by a truly coordinated and collaborative effort from the board, staff, and volunteers who came together as one ICA.
The group will move forward in four distinct
strategic direction teams to advance our vision. Each team is comprised of staff, board, and volunteers to ensure a coordinated effort moving forward. The teams will meet individually over the next few months to affirm the plan at the fall board meeting.
