Given DCNP’s young age, our current strategic plan emphasizes responsible growth with a focus on future sustainability.
Our strategic planning process was led by Alicia Schatteman (Northern Illinois University) and the final plan was delivered in January 2015. Since that time considerable progress has been made, such as:
- Aligning DCNP Sub-Committees with strategic goals
- Hiring a full-time DCNP Manager
- Growing our total membership by over 25 percent (2015 to 2016)
- Developing our membership database, implementing program evaluation systems, conducting research on the DeKalb County nonprofit sector, building new partnerships, and more
