Board Members and Directors from all three organizations making up the Artesian Alliance gathered for a productive retreat last weekend as a continuation of the Strategic Planning Process started in June. We made measurable progress towards our overarching goal of establishing a strategic business and development plan that will guide us when making decisions and plans for the future of these organizations. Thank you to Felis Consulting for facilitating a dynamic and motivating session! We are excited to see what the future holds for all three organizations as well as the Artesian Alliance itself.

We are still gathering valuable input from the community and potential visitors as we move forward. If you are able, please complete the virtual workshop here: https://www.felisconsulting.com/workshop The password is: alliance
