Tom Henz, Director/Facilitator and Ray Warco, Facilitator from the USCB Center for Strategic Planning were our speakers.  The mission of the Center is "To empower businesses and organizations to achieve their vision". Ray talked about pushing the pause button and asking questions such as: "are we going in the right direction?"; "are we prepared for the next big thing?".  The best thing is to have a plan but have to have the correct information.  A good way to do that is do a good honest confidential survey, assemble a team, think about what you are doing, push reset!  USCB provides planning services for businesses and organizations.  They 1. Work with you and your team to facilitate the development of the strategic plan through their 10 step process called "Bridge to Better" 2. Facilitate your board meetings, workshops and retreats 3.
