Every three to five years, the PMC Board of Directors develops a strategic plan that sets goals to be achieved at the end of the 3-5 years of the plan. Our last plan was developed in 2014 and implemented in 2015. That plan resulted in some major changes, not least of which, was our new branding as the Portland Media Center, as well as a complete renovation of our front area and hallways. Many of our programmatic goals during this year involved increased local programming, which has been exceeded beyond our wildest expectations.
The PMC Board is now in the process of developing another strategic plan to implement at the end of this year or in the beginning of 2019. The process starts with research, which includes asking you, our stakeholders, to give your input. Please be prepared to give us your feedback as we contact you with questions. We are also more than willing to take any input about what we do, what we shouldn’t be doing, what we could do in the future and what we could do better. If you’d like more information or would like to get involved in this research phase please contact Tom Handel at 75-2900 Ext. 200 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. The research phase will continue throughout the summer. The results of our research will be distributed to the staff and Board of Directors, who will get together for a retreat in September to develop the next strategic plan.
