Strategic Planning with Dr. Paul Craig

The Village Board met today for Strategic Planning.  Dr. Paul Craig was the facilitator.  The meeting lasted from 9 a.m. until just after 3:30 p.m.

Strategic Planning can be very tedious, and I can’t say that I always look forward to the day.  However, this year was exceptional.  I was looking forward to this one. Five of us on the board already know Dr. Craig from the Illinois Municipal Leage LEADS classes he teaches.  Three of us have completed the courses: Bonita Dillard was first, followed by me and Mae Brandon.  Rob McCray and Georgia O’Neill are currently taking the classes which meet six weekends a year, gathering every two months.

Very inspirational day in government.  How many times can one say that a day in government work was inspirational?
