The 2011 Strategic and Implementation Plan resulted from an extensive planning process that ran concurrently with the 30-year review of the Network. The attached document summarizes and then details a set of Network strategies for building on past successes. It prioritized activities in five key areas: Research, Education, Communication, Information Management, and Coordination with other Networks. The timeframe for this plan was five years, with an intention to update it annually. When funding for implementing the plan was not achieved, follow-up lost momentum.
