“A vision without a plan is a dream. A plan without a vision is just drudgery. But, a vision with a plan can change the world.” -Old proverb
As WDA-Americas embarks on the next phase of engaging our ever evolving and increasingly challenging interrelated world, the leadership has been listening to our membership. It is apparent that it is time for WDA-Americas to re-evaluate, re-vision, and re-plan for our future.
WDA-Americas, like all not-for-profit organizations, faces a future with many externally imposed demands and uncertainties in addition to many internal challenges. However, WDA-Americas has the opportunity to collectively influence the terms on which we will face these challenges. We have the ability and the opportunity to develop a realistic view of our current circumstances, to develop our best view of our possible future, and to select the path that we believe will best serve this organization, our membership, and possible future partnerships. This will require a combination of re-visioning and concise planning, both of which will directly influence the future of the organization for many years to come.
A Visioning Committee is being spearheaded by Mary Jane Warner (President), Marcia De La Garza (N.A. Board Member), and Scott Martin (V.P. representing N.A.). Once a plan of action has been established, additional information will be made available and a call will be put out to membership for involvement and input.
