ECA Strategic Doing Session June 13 RSVP Link

Dear ECA Members,

During the 2023 ECA convention in Baltimore you may have heard that we are planning a truncated strategic planning session, called STRATEGIC DOING. Below you will find more information about the program, so you know what to expect during our time together.

What Is Strategic Doing?

In this session we’ll work together to develop and implement new solutions to opportunities for our association. Around virtual "tables" of 6-8 ECA members, teams will explore growth opportunities, identify a small pilot project, and make a plan for the next 30 days to get started on the project.

The method of STRATEGIC DOING focuses on action-oriented collaborations, measurable outcomes and making adjustments along the way. It answers the questions, “Where are we going?” AND “How will we get there?”

This is not your typical meeting! It’s an interactive and participatory format where we’ll all bring assets and together consider what actions we can take.

If you want to learn more about Strategic Doing, watch this video featuring the original developer of the process, Ed Morrison:

Who can participate?

This process is open to any ECA member.

Please RSVP

What do you need to bring or be prepared with?

Please be prepared to talk about and share your assets with your "table" of 6-8 ECA members. Our assets are the collective resources we all bring to the workshop. Your assets are your relationships, your skills, and experiences.

What is the time commitment?

Our workshop on June 13 at 1pm ET will be 3.5 hours (our time will go fast), and we ask that you commit to attending the entire time. Additionally, you will be asked to volunteer for a task to help your table move its plan forward (no more than about an hour a month for the next quarter), as well as short monthly check-in meetings. In short, if you attend STRATEGIC DOING, you will do work to make the project happen.

This is a new way for us to work together, but we hope the experience gives you a new set of skills as well as moves our work as an association forward.

Please RSVP so that we can prepare accordingly!

The link for our time together is below.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Thank you,

The ECA Officers
