ICPHSO Strategic Planning – ICPHSO’s current strategic plan is for the time period of 2013-2018.  A Strategic Planning Committee has been formed and we are in the process of updating our strategic plan for the period of 2018-2023.  After some initial work by the Strategic Planning Committee, a survey will be sent to all ICPHSO members in November 2017 seeking input on our new Strategic Plan.  If you aren’t already a member, now may be the time to consider joining us so your voice can be heard as we shape the future of the organization.
