Draft of New Strategic Plan Available

The draft of The Forum’s Strategic Plan for 2017-21 is now available for review and feedback.

The Strategic Planning Team has met regularly over the past year to develop the draft Plan, incorporating research, and dialogue with members, the Forum Council and the Forum Board of Directors. This week, the Forum Board of Directors approved the draft for dissemination to the membership for comments and feedback.

Forum Institutional Representatives should have received an email with a link to an online feedback form.  If you are an Institutional Representative and did not receive this email, please contact us at

We also invite members at large and non-members to review the draft, and send their feedback to Comments received before Friday, April 7 will be considered as we develop the specific ways that the Plan will be implemented.

Highlights of the draft plan include:

  • A sharper, more concise mission statement;
  • A new vision statement;
  • A new set of foundational principles;
  • Strategic goals that will guide The Forum’s activities and delivery of member services and benefits over the next four years.
