GPCA Strategic Plan FY2017-2019 (draft)

GPCA Bylaws Section 11-2 Strategic Plan states:

"The Coordinating Committee shall present a draft Two-Year Strategic Plan to the General Assembly for approval along with the annual budget, using input from a brainstorming session of the General Assembly and the Work Plans of the Committees and Working Groups. The Two-Year Strategic Plan shall include a two-year General Assembly schedule, including potential agenda items, based upon the requirements for General Assembly decisions in these bylaws and the projected agenda items in the Work Plans of the Committees and Working Groups. The two-year General Assembly schedule shall be revised annually, with scheduling remaining flexible and final agenda approval for each General Assembly up to each General Assembly."

This FY2017-2018 GPCA Strategic Plan timeline updates the 2017 timeline from http://www.cagreens.org/ga/2016-05/strategic-plan, and adds 2018. It is submitted as an agenda item on the June 5 teleconference of the Coordinating Committee.
