SHC Symposium – Strategic Planning for Your Herbarium—A Professional Development Opportunity brought to you by the Society of Herbarium Curators and iDigBio.
Thursday, June 29, 2017; 8 am – 12 pm.
What is strategic planning? Why is it valuable? Where does one begin?
Join us for a morning of discussion and talks facilitated by a professional project manager. Learn from your colleagues’ experiences and build a plan for initiating the process within your own herbarium. Although we’ve done a good job with strategic planning across the collections community as a whole, relatively few herbaria have undertaken the activity for themselves. Strategic planning is important because it forms the foundation for long-term sustainability and helps communicate your herbarium’s value and vision to administrators, the public, colleagues, and policymakers.
Come and start YOUR strategic planning process today!
