The Arc has embarked on designing our next strategic plan. This is a really exciting time for us because so much change is in the air. Rather than be threatened by that change, we will prepare for it and seize the many opportunities that change can bring. Thanks to those of you who took the survey that we published! We received over 200 responses and the Strategic Planning Committee met recently to review the survey results. Your input was very valuable and although we won’t be able to implement every idea submitted, a great deal was used to formulate draft priorities that will be submitted to the board for review, editing and approval. So stay tuned for more detail.
I’d like to hear more from you. So, we are establishing a “suggestions” email address to which you can send your thoughts about changes that we can make to make our agency better. The address for the box is SuggestionBox@arcmontmd.org. Now just a few rules: 1) No griping – keep it positive!, 2) No personal attacks on anyone, and 3) No suggestions about increased pay. And although we’d love to pay more we simply cannot at present. So let us hear from you. We will highlight implemented suggestions in future editions of the newsletter.
Thanks for all you do to live our mission of inclusion for the people we support!
