Given that this is DCNP’s first strategic plan, our current plan emphasizes responsible growth with a focus on future sustainability.
Our strategic planning process was led by Dr. 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 DCNP staff
- Growing our total membership
- Developing our membership database, implementing program evaluation systems, conducting research on the DeKalb County nonprofit sector, building new partnerships, and more
