How much change to make to the current Strategic Plan?

Examples of Questions for Discussion:

  • Will adding or significantly re-writing chapters be helpful or confusing to the research community? Does this vary by chapter?

  • Will adding/deleting objectives each year be helpful or confusing to the research community? Does this vary by chapter?
