GLIN==> Draft Strategic Plan for the Great Lakes Commission



Draft Five Year Strategic Plan for the Great Lakes Commission:
http://www.glc.org/announce/00/SPlan-revtext.pdf

The Great Lakes Commission membership will formally adopt a revised
Strategic Plan at its Semiannual Meeting in Duluth on May 11-12. Once
adopted, it will provide the framework for guiding Commission activities
over the next five years. It’s important that all members, Observers and
other Great Lakes interests have an opportunity to review and comment on
this draft document.

The attached draft is similar in format to the 1995-2000 version of the
plan, but there are many important differences.

For example, the draft Strategic Plan for 2000-2005:

1. Acknowledges the Associate Member program and focuses on
state/provincial partnership;

2. Renames one program area as “Transportation and Sustainable
Development” to better reflect our expanding focus on sustainable
economic development;

3. Highlights new technical capabilities at the Commission (e.g.,
electronic communications, GIS) and their applications;

4. Emphasizes the Commission’s technical and decision support role in
multiple areas, particularly water quantity management;

5. Identifies current/anticipated large-scale initiatives at the
Commission; and

6. Eliminates redundancies in the previous plan and streamlines the
document.

We welcome your comments on this latest draft, and ask that you submit
them on or before Friday, March 24. All will be carefully considered as
a final draft is prepared for Commission membership approval in May.

Comments can be provided to Mike Donahue, executive director, by fax
(734-665-4370), email (mdonahue@glc.org) or by mailing to: Great Lakes
Commission; Argus II Bldg. 400 Fourth Street; Ann Arbor, MI 48103.
