» AYUDA Board Strategic Planning Retreat
Wednesday, March 5th, 2014
On February 1st, the board, staff and volunteers of AYUDA came together to create a strategic plan for the growth of the organization. The retreat was hosted at the offices of the Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce, with the session led by Stephanie M. Clarke, President & CEO of Milestones Marketing.
With 15 years of nonprofit executive management and consulting experience with several community and faith-based organizations in the areas of organizational management and marketing, as well as features in national media including The Talk, FOX News, The Steve Harvey Morning Show, The Michael Baisden Show, CNN’s Comcast Newsmakers, The Huffington Post, Bloomberg Urban Report, Black Enterprise.com, NBC News’ (thegrio.com), Yahoo! News, and many others, Mrs. Clarke came complete with tons of tips and connections that will be sure to aide AYUDA for years to come.
After completing as much as possible in several hours, the board realized the need for an additional meeting to complete the planning process. Therefore, a board meeting was also held on Tuesday, February 4th at the AYUDA main office in Miami Beach. Mrs. Clarke then took all of the planning worksheets and created a comprehensive strategic plan for the organization, which we are currently working on finalizing.
When the new plan is available, we will share!
We’d like to send a special thanks to Sir Pizza in Miami Beach for their generous donation of refreshments for the retreat.
