Now is the time for the organization to define its role in the political and social climate of this nation in light of a historic election, utilize a tremendous opportunity to enhance the brand and mission of the organization around a centennial celebration, seek to identify and secure new funding for the future of existing and emerging programs and initiatives, develop and recruit talented personnel, examine the organization's fiscal and governance structure, and finally excite a new generation of servant leaders that will see value in our mission.
