What is the general price range for having a strategic plan consultant firm?
Kelly Cunningham, The Association
Shelly - were the peer interviews conducted with peers across the country or did you focus on peers within your region? And did these include exclusively animal welfare professionals or were community partners included?
Mark Neff
The agency I am with did a planning 4 years ago for a 5 year plan - handled in house w/board and ED - 4 years in goals have not been achieved - many components of a true Strategic Plan were absent..
Mark Neff
Given you have just completed a 3 year plan - at what point would you begin the next round of planning? How far into the existing plan?
