Attleboro Land Trust Board of Directors Holds Strategic Planning Retreat

The Attleboro Land Trust Board of Directors recently held a retreat to conduct strategic planning for the near and long-term future of the organization. The productivity of the retreat was due in no small measure to the generosity and expert facilitation skills of Don Keinz of Acadia Consulting Group. In order to ensure its long term future (which in terms of land conservation means forever!), the board set out ambitious goals for strengthening its organizational capacity over the next three to five years. Among the goals agreed upon at the meeting:

  • Improve the core functions of the organization, including membership recruitment, fund-raising, and volunteer management.
  • Improve public awareness of the organization.
  • Implement an archival records and data management system.
  • Double the number of acres preserved over the next 5 years.

To achieve these goals, the land trust will hire a part time managing director. The land trust will also conduct conservation efforts in North Attleboro, in cooperation with local officials and citizens of that town.
