Strategic Planning – Your Voice Matters!

One of the top priorities of the 2021-2022 CCLGL Executive Committee is to develop and adopt a strategic plan to direct the Section’s trajectory over the next 3 to 5 years. Don Crowell (2020-2021 Chair), initiated the strategic plan process in 2020, recognizing the benefit of consistent and cogent goals to keep the Section successfully fulfilling its duties to Section members.

Now, a temporary Strategic Plan Task Force has been appointed to do the heavy lifting on this important task. Local government law is such an exciting and diverse practice, and we all encounter unique challenges on a day-to-day basis. The Section’s overarching goal has always been to provide resources and tools—from CLEs, to publications, to networking opportunities–to help members tackle those challenges.  With that in mind, as the Strategic Plan Task Force embarks on identifying areas for focus over the next 3 to 5 year period, we want to hear from as many Section members as possible on your priorities, goals, and objectives for the Section and how we might make our already collegial Section even better. This is your Section; and your input matters!

In the next week or so, all CCLGL members will receive a very brief (5 question) survey from the Florida Bar. Please take time to thoughtfully respond and do not hesitate to contact any member of the Executive Committee or Strategic Plan Task Force personally if you wish to discuss ideas to make the Section stronger in the future.  Thank you in advance for your participation.

June 28, 2021 Update: The CCLGL Strategic Plan Survey was sent to 1,859 Florida Bar City, County and Local Government Law Section members in June, 2021. A total of 159 completed surveys were received by the deadline, for a response rate of 9%. Those who responded provided thoughtful suggestions and comments, and the Strategic Plan Task Force will be carefully reviewing the responses as they develop the strategic plan over the next few months. Thank you to all who took the time to submit your thoughts; your input is greatly appreciated and will help guide the future momentum of the Section.
