Every five years, the NAUMS, Inc. Board of Trustees schedules a Strategic Planning Retreat to give a variety of stakeholders the opportunity to contribute to corporate strategic planning for UMSI schools.

The 2019 Corporate Planning Retreat, scheduled February 26-27, will precede plans to implement AdvancED Systems Accreditation for Certified and Accredited UMSI Schools, as well as the official implementation of the Five-Year 2019-2023 Strategic Plan.

As you register, you will have an opportunity to select your first and second choices of discussion groups. Second choice is optional.

For those unable to attend the retreat, we have scheduled a one-day Administrative Forum on Thursday, April 4, 2019, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Lunch and refreshments will be served. The main purpose of the Administrative Forum will be to review the Five-Year Strategic Planning accomplished during the February retreat and to discuss AdvancED Systems Accreditation in more detail. More information to follow for the Forum, to be conducted at the NAUMS, Inc. office in Midlothian, TX.

Please feel free to contact me at bfreeman@umsi.org with questions or concerns.

On behalf of the NAUMS, Inc. Board of Trustees and the entire UMSI team, thank you for your prayers, partnership, and support.

In Christ’s love and service,
Barbara Freeman
