The Planning Process

  • Leaders within the ECN approached the Office of Strategic Consulting in December 2013 to develop a strategic plan.
  • Work quickly began in January 2014, with the announcement of the plan to administrators, members, and ECN partners.
  • A steering committee was formed of EVLT members and two active general members, who then identified task force members and appropriate stakeholders.
  • Surveys, interviews, and workshops were conducted in the summer of 2014, which garnered data the group used to develop goals, strategies, and initiatives.
  • Initiatives were prioritized and refined by the task force members, then sent back to the steering committee for final review.
  • In the fall of 2014, the plan was drafted and vetted through the ECN task force and stake holders to ensure accuracy and inclusion of all pertinent ideas.
  • The steering committee shared the plan with their supervisors and Institute leadership prior to final production.
  • The plan was formally announced to ECN membership at the 6th Annual Event Coordinators’ Network Workshop: Designing for Excellence on Wednesday, November 19, 2014.
