AVVA Report

Strategic Planning

By Nancy Switzer, President

The Associates of Vietnam Veterans of America held its first Leadership Conference in conjunction with the VVA’s Tenth National Convention in Greensboro, North Carolina, in August. It was a great meeting. At our first seminar, Ann Lawrence, a facilitator, donated her time to help us out. About 85 AVVA members took part in the seminar, in which we discussed ideas about how to develop an organization-wide strategic plan.

It was a long day, but much was accomplished. We wound up adopting many goals. We decided that we need to set priorities because we cannot do everything at once. We will choose our priorities based on importance, ability to complete at this time, and other factors.

I would like to thank everyone who attended the seminar on strategic planning for AVVA. I know that by taking part, everyone reaffirmed their commitment to this organization. We will get better by working together. Anyone who has any questions or concerns, should feel free to contact me.
