On Tuesday, February 27, Northern Community Mediation (NCM) will hold its annual Board Retreat at the Boyne City Tap Room from 4:30pm to 8:00pm. President Kate Scollin will give the board members an update on last year’s board retreat and the progress that has been made in attaining its goals.
Following that introduction, Board Members Chelsea Platte and Christian Smith will give instructions as to the format of this year’s retreat. Basically, everyone will be asked to join one of four work groups, each of which relates to increasing revenue: fundraising, state lobbying efforts, county lobbying efforts, and other programming sources of income. The goal is for each group to develop reasonable and attainable means of increasing revenue for NCM.
The four work groups will then come together and share their ideas. This process will be facilitated by DJ Jones, Executive Director of the Petoskey-Harbor Springs Area Community Foundation. All of this information will be compiled into a strategic plan that will include timelines and responsible parties.
