Kim Williams and Steering Committe

We have achieved many of our targeted "nexus" goals and will begin to develop a 5-Year Plan that will target some key issues such as:

  • Refining an organizational structure
  • Prioiritizing support and determinging key projects and actions in the next several years
  • Refining what being a "partner means" We hope to have a spirited discussion what you think are the strenghts, weakness, and opportunities of the Partnership may be. Stay tuned for a pre-meeting survey that will help informat us on your thoughts.
