Your Cooperative’s Year 2 operations plan is now available.  This plan provides a high-level view of how our efforts will be focused over the coming 12-18 months.  This plan continues to tie directly to the mission and goals developed in our strategic plan.  The operations plan was developed from direction received from your steering committee in March.  The primary focus of that direction was to redouble efforts to develop ver 1.0 of the shared conservation blueprint by spring/summer of 2014.  The sense of the steering committee is that having the first draft of the blueprint will bring much needed clarity to discussions with a variety of stakeholders who may have a role in implementing conservation actions called for in the plan.
