Well, it seems appropriate somehow to note this is ongoing. What if we maintain the first part of #58, while having the rest read something like ” while evaluating ….. and developing, implementing…, and supporting….”
So that it’s a continuation and enhancement of what is in place, not separate. Not sure that helps with your concerns. Just a thought.
See in context

I agree with Brenda that this doesn’t need to be a goal on its own – unless the board feels that is required to emphasize its importance and particular significance at this time. It does sound kind of flat. Yes, examples here, perhaps something directly from the WG report, to at least show that we have an idea of our direction in carrying it out. We’ve been doing our homework on this and we need to show that.

Overall GOAL I is a good basic section and a subject dear to my heart. Other than Suzanne’s note, which I agree with, I can find nothing wanting.

I like Molly’s suggestion!

To play devil’s advocate to Suzanne and Sarah’s comments…Does our last strategic plan actually call out an audience made up of international conservators, allied professionals, and the public? I feel like that focus is relatively new for AIC so should perhaps be mentioned.

Position statements that promote the Guidelines for Practice? If not, this section is out of place.

I’ll be happy to see this move forward. Refreshing the guidelines will give us another opportunity to highlight best practices in the field. Is that what is meant by section 66?

I agree that cutting “continue to” would make the text stronger. Good suggestion.
I would find it helpful to have a working document with three columns that compare this strategic plan with the last one:
what are we continuing?
what are we cutting?
we are we adding?
This would help us all see the changes more clearly and better articulate the plan to members.

I’m also struggling with how to make this more substantial, but I’m not sure I agree with making it a goal on its own. As I see it, each of the goals in this document relate to core functions of AIC as an organization. Addressing equity and inclusion is not a core function of the organization, although it is an important value that should be reflected in the work done on each of these goals. So by extension, how can we address issues of equity and inclusion as we: retain members and enhance member service, advocate for the field, provide educational opportunities to advance the field of conservation, etc.?

Should we also mention the need for collaborations with emergency management entities?
