Diablo Chapter not only for the strategic planning process documented throughout this presentation, but also for the opportunity to present an earlier version of this session as a 10-minute strategic planning process overview during the Chapter Board’s retreat in January 2011. Mt. Diablo Chapter Board members are a tremendous resource for the Chapter and the extended community they serve—including colleagues in other ASTD Chapters.
