Developing Our Strategic Direction

DCNP’s first strategic plan was created in January 2015. It emphasized responsible growth with a focus on future sustainability, including tactics such as:

  • Aligning DCNP sub-committees with strategic goals
  • Hiring DCNP staff
  • Growing our total membership
  • Developing our membership database, implementing program evaluation systems, conducting research on the DeKalb County nonprofit sector, and building new partnerships

In July 2019, the DCNP Steering Committee decided that our strategic plan could be updated and enhanced rather than creating an entirely new plan. Throughout a year-long, deliberate process stakeholder feedback was incorporated resulting in a revised strategic and operational plan for 2020-2023. An updated plan is forthcoming.
