IVGID board strategy sessions conclude; next steps ready

Staff report

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — Last Thursday and Friday, IVGID trustees and senior staff sat through the final strategic planning sessions put on by the Chicago-based planning firm, CoralBridge Partners.

According to IVGID, the primary goal of the planning sessions (another happened on Feb. 17) was "to achieve commitment from the board and senior management on strategic direction that will drive IVGID over the next five years."

With the meetings concluded, CoralBridge is proposing the following as next steps in the process, according to a Tuesday news release from the district:

• CoralBridge will put together a framework of priorities (a plan) and send it to IVGID.

• District staff will create action steps and a budget and bring them back to the board.

• If IVGID agrees to it, CoralBridge will check up on the plan in a year.

• CoralBridge also recommends that IVGID designates a central communications person.

After CoralBridge releases the plan to IVGID (a timeframe is unknown at this time), a follow-up briefing may be scheduled with the community, according to the news release.

"I think the board and team worked very hard and came up with key priorities for this next up-and-coming 2-4 years," CoralBridge Principal Charlie Bishop said in a statement. "This provides a roadmap for (IVGID General Manager Steve Pinkerton) and his team."
