Strategic Planning

The public (yes, that's you) is invited to participate in the Mariana Island Nature Alliance's Strategic Planning session this Saturday at Fiesta hotel from 8:30 AM - 5:30 PM.

This Strategic Planning session which will set our course for the next three (3) years. I need some help gathering input on MINA’s past activities. Can you help me out by answering a few questions (see link below)?

We are asking for input from individuals and organizations. We will use all the input we receive. If you wish confidentiality, no specific comment will be attributed to you in our discussions or plan. Your participation would help make our strategic planning session become more effective in helping us protect our natural resources.

It is only one page long and should only take a few minutes. Simply download the Word document, fill out your answers, and email it back to me at angelovillagomez at gmail dot com.

Click HERE to download the Questionnaire
. I need it by Friday night.

If you would like to participate, please just shoot me an RSVP email. An RSVP is not necessary, but it will help us have an idea of how many people are going to show up. We'll be at Fiesta from 8:30 AM - 5:30 PM and we're providing lunch and other refreshments.


I was supposed to go on Harry Blalock's radio show this morning...but I forgot to go. He's *graciously* invited me to come on the show tomorrow morning. Friday is the Uncle Dave and Harry show. Should be fun. I've never been on with Dave Sablan. I'm looking forward to being ridiculed for missing today's show.

I'll be discussing the MINA Strategic Planning Session and I'm sure I'll talk a bit about my trip, too.


Speaking of Friday, Aqua Resort Club will be making a very generous donation to Beautify CNMI during a happy hour presentation in their lobby this Friday, November 16, 2007 from 5-7 PM. The presentation will be made at 6:30. ARC will be providing some food and all drinks will be 50% off the regular price.

Everyone who has been involved with Beautify CNMI is invited to attend. Please come help us celebrate this generous donation.

Some of us are going to have dinner at the Seafood Night buffet afterwards. Dinner is $25 and includes some of the best seafood on Saipan and free beer and champagne.

I'm replying to your questionaire, Angelo, but wish you had formatted it so could copy and paste. Like Word instead of PDF. Maybe its just me.

Anyway, I'll send to you via email. I will be able to come to only part of the session as I have other committments.

Thanks, Angelo. I had a good time at the BCNMI event last evening. You and Chef Hubert did a nice job of hosting it.
