Couldn’t make their session on Professional Development Day?  Interested in what ended up happening with all those post-its on Institutional Improvement Day?  Here is your chance to attend this brown bag session and spend an hour with Jason Dockter and Scott Stallman chatting about just that.  They will catch you up on the information captured that day with a summary of the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats identified by you and the other folks who work here.  They will also offer related information from the environmental scan. The session will be informative, casual and fun, so bring your lunch and learn more about strategic planning.
