Dear IT Strategic Planning subscribers…


If anyone on the list is attending the EDUCAUSE Midwest Conference next week in Chicago, please let me know if you are willing to facilitate a lunch roundtable discussion on strategic planning, scheduled for Tuesday, March 27 from 11:30-12:30.  What’s required is to assess the lunch participants’ interests and questions, and guide the conversation.  The tables either hold 6 or 8 individuals.  If you are also wish to summarize the discussion in a document afterwards (not required), it can be uploaded later to our web page at


Due to my father’s move into hospice, I am unable to attend the conference and I was planning to serve as the facilitator.


If no one is available to facilitate, I’ll notify EDUCAUSE and the roundtable will be cancelled.


Many thanks,




Debra Allison
