Strategic Plan to be Ready for the 2003 Seattle Meeting
Submitted by Jean M. Wenger
At the direction of Chair Ken Rudolf, the FCIL Strategic Planning Committee has been diligently working on developing the long awaited strategic plan for our SIS.
The Committee includes Jean Davis (Brooklyn Law School), Jolande Goldberg (Library of Congress), Mary Rumsey (University of Minnesota), Dan Wade (Yale Law School) and chair, Jean Wenger (Cook County Law Library), and brings many years of experience from a variety of professional settings to the development process.
The Committee has carefully reviewed the work of earlier strategic planning committees including the responses of FCIL members to surveys and questionnaires. Using this data, the Committee has developed a three year plan addressing three major goals. The Committee had the opportunity to meet twice during the American Society of International Law Annual Meeting in Washington last month.
The draft strategic plan is undergoing final revisions. The draft plan will be submitted to the Executive Committee in May for review with formal approval at the AALL Annual Meeting in Seattle. The Executive Committee will post the proposed strategic plan to the FCIL web site before the Annual Meeting and will publish the final plan in the Fall 2003 Newsletter. The Committee would like to thank the many FCIL members who have worked on strategic planning and have contributed their thoughts and ideas through survey and questionnaire responses.
