The Society of Herbarium Curators and iDigBio are pleased to announce a 7-week "Strategic Planning for Herbaria” online course.
The “Strategic Planning for Herbaria” course will occur on Fridays from 2:00–3:00 Eastern Standard Time from April 5–May 17, 2019. We anticipate that the course will require 3–5 hours of work per week, including the 1 hour in-class. The goal is to produce a short (5–10 pages) strategic plan for each represented herbarium. Each plan will address vision, mission, stakeholders, strategies, goals, objectives, evaluation, and sustainability, among other things. The process is at least as valuable as the product, and you might find that the exercises benefit your herbarium in unexpected ways. This is the third year that this course will be offered.
Applications for the course have been closed; the course has been capped at 15 participants to ensure adequate opportunities to participate in discussions.
