Strategy and Planning

At the 2015 Annual Conference, the LLAMA Board voted to move away from the traditional three-year strategic plan and instead commit to an ongoing cycle of development, implementation, assessment, and adjustment of strategic directions that will guide the work of the organization.  The directions are shaped by conversations with members and at each Board meetings, and are implemented by sections, volunteers, and members.

Previous Planning and Evaluation

Below for reference is LLAMA’s 2012-15 Strategic Plan along with an evaluation of the plan's effectiveness.  The previous plan focused attention on three strategic themes: 1) member engagement and value, 2) leadership development and continuous learning, and 3) organizational excellence.  Each theme had a goal statement and key objectives.
