Update December 2013

Strategic Plan

As previously noted the Board will be conducting a planning process which will allow all members to participate. This participation will include an online member survey which will be conducted in January 2014. Watch for the notice which will be emailed to the company contact listed with MARS. In addition input will also be solicited from other association stakeholders such as government regulatory departments. Information from all the noted sources will then be gathered, analyzed and presented to a strategic planning group which will include this information in their deliberations. A long term plan will then be developed and presented to the members at the April general meeting.
