Our 2020 ACEC-SC Strategic Planning Retreat, led by ACEC-SC Vice Chair Jason Eppley, Davis & Floyd, Inc., will center on follow-through. Two years ago, ACEC-SC developed a Strategic Plan. Although we made some progress last year on accomplishing tasks, we still have work to do to achieve our goals. This year, we will focus on accountability and follow-through. Joe Clark, Clark Strategic Consulting, LLC, will return to help facilitate how we advance the Strategic Plan in order to reach our goals. We will take a deep dive into where we are in our strategic goals, how our strategic plan aligns with ACEC National’s newly developed strategic plan, and what are tangible goals that we can measure to ensure the success of our Strategic Plan. 


The retreat will kick off Thursday evening with a friendly Dutch treat reception on Fripp Island. Our ACEC-SC board meeting will occur Friday morning. Attendees will break for lunch at noon before we get down to business. Vice Chair Jason Eppley and Joe Clark will walk us through exercises to gauge where we are in effectiveness and implementation of the Strategic Plan. The group will analyze our successes and failures over the past two years. Friday evening, there will be a reception/dinner for all attendees and spouses/guests to get to know each other.


On Saturday, we will start the day with a breakfast buffet and spouses/guests are welcome to attend. Later that day, we will assign members responsible for implementation of each strategic goal. The day will conclude around noon so you can enjoy the island. Spouses/guests are welcome at all meals.  


You can help ACEC-SC achieve our strategic goals by participating in this retreat. Your input in this process is vital for your organization needs your input, participation, and leadership.
