NEA taking the past into the future

NEA Strategic Plan Update

2015-04-07 9:49 AM | Michelle Romero

The 2015-2020 Strategic Plan Task Force was formed to write a new strategic plan for NEA, which will guide the organization through the next five years. Over the last few months, the Task Force has worked on the first step of the strategic planning process: drafting a vision and mission statement, and a series of core values for NEA.  These statements were discussed at the annual business meeting on March 21st and given a vote of confidence by the membership.  Below are the statements:

Vision Statement
Advancing innovative stewardship of the recorded past with a focus on the future.
Mission Statement
To connect and support the diverse individuals and organizations in New England responsible for the care of cultural heritage and the documentary record, through advocacy, education, communication, and cultivation of a strong, inclusive professional network.

Core Organizational Values
New England Archivists is committed to:
      — Advocating for archival practice and all individuals engaged in archival work and study.
      — Building community with an emphasis on inclusion and diversity.
      — Encouraging collaboration, innovation, experimentation, and creativity across institutions and areas of expertise.
      — Stewarding the historical record.
      — Promoting transparency, integrity, and professional ethics.

These statements will act as a touchstone for the next phase of strategic planning: writing the goals and strategies that will guide the organization forward.  Be on the lookout, in the annual membership survey, for opportunities to tell us your ideas about what you'd like to see in the goals and strategies.
