Strategic Planning

Oct 22, 2013 Melodie Morgan-LeMoeligou

The National Board is moving ahead with strategic planning. We will be working with Aperio Management Consulting Firm.

Aperio is a management consulting firm that works exclusively with organizations (private and nonprofit) that have a social purpose. Their objective is to enable clients to recognize their most important challenges and opportunities, then create and implement strategic solutions to address them.

The future is now fellow KIN. Over the next few months we will be conducting interviews, surveys and focus groups. We want to hear from you. Please take the time to participate so we can say this is "our" plan.
