Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) 2011- 2015 Strategic Plan
The Corporation wants and encourages both current and potential new partners and grantees to provide input and feedback on their strategic plan.
Opportunities for you to provide feedback include the following:
- Face-to-face Community Dialogues with the CEO and Board of Directors
- Numerous webinars for the general public
- On-line message board
The feedback and input from community dialogues, webinars, and message boards will be synthesized and shared with everyone whom is on record as participating. In addition, a summary report will be posted on the Corporation’s website http://www.nationalservice.gov/ and disseminated broadly through various communication mechanisms. Finally, the Strategic Plan itself will be posted on-line in the fall of 2010.
For more information on the 2011-2015 Strategic Plan, please visit the Corporation for National and Community Service Web site.
