Happy New Year! It’s hard to believe that it is 2023 — and yet I have had no trouble writing the correct date on documents since approximately Jan. 3 (possibly the earliest date I have achieved this in my lifetime).
I’ll be honest, I am very excited about this year for Together We Grow. We had a strong 2022 (check out the update below on the 2022 annual report), but I think the best is yet to come for this organization. Not only do we have a fantastic annual conference planned in April in partnership with MANRRS in Atlanta, Ga. (have you registered yet?!), but we also have some very important work coming up related to the strategic plan for TWG. This organization has a lofty and critical mission that can only be improved by a strategic plan that affords TWG the opportunity to establish clear goals and objectives and measure our impact over time. As a result, the TWG board of directors has nominated and established a strategic planning committee to pursue this effort over the first six months of 2023. This group of leaders comes from a variety of organizations, roles, and diverse backgrounds and perspectives, and I can’t wait to see what we achieve in the coming months as a committee.
Throughout this effort, we need you! We will be determining ways to engage with you and get your input and perspective through various channels, such as conversations, surveys, and via the Connect Conference and 2023 Annual Meeting. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to be a part of influencing our future and direction as an organization — we are better together. Let’s do this!
