The incoming Executive Committee and Board of Directors of Forum 35 met as a group on Saturday, February 20, for formal training before they assume their roles on April 1. President-Elect Kelly Bienn briefed the team on expectations, processes, financials, the strategic plan and other information relevant to Board service.
The 2016 Board of Directors:
VP: Corporate Membership
VP: Individual Membership
Since its founding in 1993, Forum 35 has grown into the largest young professional’s organization in Baton Rouge, with over 600 members! Our 2016-2018 Strategic Plan aims to strengthen Forum 35's framework and set the organization on the path to a healthy, sustainable future. As an all-volunteer organization with relatively short leadership terms, the strategic plan was left intentionally broad to allow for future leadership to accomplish goals in the context of their term. The goals identified are not necessarily in order of importance, yet goals one through four are essential for goal five to be achievable.
The incoming Forum 35 Board of Directors will be focusing on implementing many of the goals in the strategic plan!
