Draft US National Arboretum Strategic Plan
Hi Fellow Azalea Lovers,
The US National Arboretum has published a draft of its Strategic Plan for review and comments. This Strategic Plan affects not only the Arboretum’s Azalea Collection, but all of its collections. The Arboretum’s Director, Dr. Colein Heferan, has published a copy on the Arboretum’s web site at http://www.usna.usda.gov/Information/StrategicPlanDraft.html where there is a place for interested parties to download a copy and for reviewers to submit their comments. I have attached a copy of the draft for your convenience. The closing date for public comments is December 5th, 2012.
The Arboretum has undergone a number of significant changes over the past year. One of which is a much more open communication between the Arboretum’s management its stakeholders and the public. Please consider reviewing the document and submitting any comments you may have.
