Strategic Planning Project

The National Ruby-Throated Hummingbird Center, soon to be located in Henderson, Minnesota, and its non-profit corporation Henderson Feathers, Inc. are launching a series of strategic planning sessions throughout the months of September, October, November and December.  The process will include eight 2-3-hour sessions, professionally prepared and facilitated, and open to the public.  The goal is to open the Center in April, 2024.

The following purpose, session topics, schedule and outcomes are designed to provide a written document to follow in preparation for opening and sustaining operation for the next two years.  The first four sessions will be for the general public, those wishing to impart ideas and interest in the Center and consider further involvement.  The second four sessions will be more focused and involve 15-20 people wishing to continue volunteering and possibly serving as steering committee or board members.
