CCC Board Approves Strategic Plan

On Thursday, April 17, CCC’s Board of Directors approved a Strategic Plan created to guide the organization through its next three to five years. Highlights of the plan may be found here.

The plan addresses four overarching Institutional Goals, which are to:

  1. Advance the shared awareness, preservation, accessibility, use, and growth of collections related to the history and culture of the greater Chicago region.
  2. Encourage scholars, educators, students, and the public to seek out and use the Chicago-related content of member collections as a resource for teaching, learning, scholarship, research, inspiration, and creative exploration.
  3. Nurture a robust and sustainable membership program that offers value to member institutions, adapts to their changing needs, and promotes meaningful and innovative collaborations in support of Chicago-related collections and their use.
  4. Practice responsible governance, develop effective internal systems and operations, and achieve financial sustainability.

Each institutional goal includes strategies, activities and programs, as well as indicators of impact and success associated with accomplishing the goals. CCC has now launched an implementation process to begin mapping the organization’s activities for FY15 and beyond. Please direct questions to Jaclyn Grahl, CCC Executive Director.
