Special session at meeting to discuss OHA strategic plan

As many of you know, in conjunction with the new executive structure, the OHA has been undergoing a strategic planning process to help chart where the organization will be going over the next four years. Toward that end, we have have been working with Janet Rechtman, a strategic planning consultant. Janet is no stranger to oral history; for years she has sat on the board of the Foxfire Fund, associated with the famous oral history-based teaching practice. Since March, she has worked closely with OHA Council to develop a document articulating our mission, vision, values and objectives, as well as a longer document outlining an action plan.

Janet will be in attendance at the OHA meeting in Oklahoma City. Saturday morning, October 12, from 8:30-9:45, she will be available in Grand Ballroom C to discuss the plan as it has evolved, and to receive feedback from OHA members and others. We welcome your input!

According to the Memorial’s website, “The Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum is open for business despite the government shutdown. The Memorial and Museum was built and is owned and operated by a private non-profit 501(c)3 foundation. This national treasure depends solely on admissions, Museum Store sales, the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon, other private fund-raising efforts and earnings from an endowment to cover annual operational cost. The Foundation receives no annual operating monies from the city, state or federal governments.”
