The LifeRing Board of Directors has voted to begin a year-long planning process aimed at strengthening the organization and bringing it to a higher level of efficiency and productivity. The board voted to adopt a “Framework” for planning as suggested by Lynn C., who was also named Planning Coordinator, a new position. The framework is a plan for building a plan and does not set goals and objectives for the group’s future. Lynn has extensive experience both in planning and in working with non-profits. She has been very active in LifeRing’s efforts in Sacramento, CA.

The framework and a related document, a Rationale, are available to read HERE. You can also sign up there to be involved in the planning process. It is hoped, though not certain, that the final plan will be ready to present to the membership at the 2012 Annual Meeting.
