Avalone facilitates workshop for SUNY Geneseo Alumni Association
In preparation for the development of a strategic plan of their own, SUNY Geneseo Alumni Association (SGAA) contracted with the Society for College and University Planners (SCUP) to bring Valarie Avalone, director, Institutional Planning, Effectiveness and Accountability to campus on October 5 to offer a full-day customized version of the SCUP Planning Institute I.
The workshop was designed to meet the unique needs of the alumni group and to establish the foundation of integrated planning. Participants learned vital steps and gained tools and techniques to set priorities, focus energy and resources, strengthen operations, ensure working toward common goals, establish outcomes/results, and assess and adjust the organization's direction in response to a changing environment.
Avalone engaged the group of 30 alumni and administrators in facilitated discussions, hands-on learning experiences and a variety of interactive breakout sessions.
