The following post by NCG President and CEO Colin Lacon was originally published as an introduction to NCG’s All Member Newsletter Winter issue. Since Colin’s introduction includes mention of our Strategic Planning Process, we decided to re-post it here on our blog.
Can you believe it’s already December? Where did the year go so quickly? For many this time of year is a time to reflect on all that’s transpired during the past twelve months. While we take stock of the past year, we also look forward to the year ahead. Here at NCG we too are reflecting on both the past and what’s upcoming in 2013.
For NCG, 2012 has included a process of assessing our past to help forge new directions for the future. During the past year NCG staff, Board, and many of our members have participated in a targeted Strategic Planning Process to help us recalibrate to the growing and evolving philanthropic landscape.
For many of you out there this should sound very familiar. NCG has been sharing our interest and exploration of our Strategic Planning Process along the way. We offer a visual aid in order to help map out how that process has unfolded and where we are now.
Take a look at our NCG’s Strategic Planning Process: Why, How and Where We Are Now infographic which illustrates the different phases of our Strategic Planning Process. And for more in-depth information about our process, visit ncg.org/planning.
