Developing a Strategic Plan

Key Elements of State Coalitions

If possible, use an outside facilitator for a strategic planning session and develop the plan that will guide your coalition's work for the next year or so. Recognize that starting small is ok; choose realistic, short term projects for initial work while keeping longer term goals in sight.

Coalition Example - "This should be the number one priority of any coalition. The time invested in the strategic planning process will be very well worth it. Even if the plan needs to be changed as time goes on, it is important to set clear goals in order to move forward in a strategic way." Becky Haldorson, President, Illinois Pioneer Coalition
