SLD Strategic Plan 2021-22

SLD's multi-year strategic plan was formed during Midyear 2020 and has evolved with objectives and action items to achieve five main goals (1) retain, engage and promote membership; (2) provide quality publications; (3) provide substantive programs; (4) become a collaborator with other Sections, Divisions, and Forums and other legal organizations; and (5) develop “Centers of Excellence” for resources on various topics based in the Senior Lawyers Division.
