Message from WCAGA Board
In late 2014 the WCAGA Board held some intense discussions about whether or not to pursue the idea of obtaining our own space for meetings, programming and exhibitions. We decided that the first step was to develop a Strategic Plan as a way to articulate and establish our common goals and to implement a process to help us reach them.
This Strategic Plan was developed last Spring by Board members Kate Colpitts, Sally Wansboro Eppstein, Maggie Davis, Barb Rheg, Maxine Hess and WCAGA members Rita Beasley, Aviva Stern, Serey Andre and Ashley Schick. Wendy Cardell served as our professional facilitator. The committee met on three Sunday mornings over a six week period.
The plan is divided into four categories: Administrative, Financial, Communication and Programs. Within each category, short and long term goals were established.
It was our objective that this plan remain flexible.
Our guiding principles were inclusion, outreach and education.
