2021 - 2024 Strategic Plan
On March 17, 2021, previous and new MPWB Board members participated in a strategic planning session. We identified a number of internal factors which affect the efficacy of our organization. From this meeting, we identified major goals for the next 3 years. The results of those findings are summarized here. Briefly we identify 3 major pillars which define our strategic priorities.
A summary of the report is available here.
