The Gay & Lesbian Community Center of Baltimore has started a comprehensive strategic planning process. With the help of funding from the Goldseker Foundation’s Management Assistance Grants, the GLCCB has contracted with Baltimore-based Strategic Management Consulting, LLC to facilitate the planning process.
“We are very excited to move through this process, which will help us plan for our future programmatically, operationally, structurally and financially,” said Trevor Ankeny, GLCCB’s board chair. “This process will also help us answer some questions we have had as to the direction of our organization, and the best way to take the GLCCB to the next level. A good process and plan will help guide us in that direction.”
Odette Ramos, president and CEO of Strategic Management Consulting, LLC, will facilitate the planning. The first step is collecting information through interviews with key constituency groups and stakeholders, surveys and research on national models.
A questionnaire is available on the GLCCB website (glccb.org) where readers can express an opinion about the GLCCB and what it should be doing moving forward, as well as a vision for what the LGBT community in Baltimore should be and where the GLCCB fits in.
