January 6 and 7 brought the Colorado based Family Policy Alliance’s President and CEO Paul Weber to South Dakota. Paul facilitated a Family Heritage Alliance Strategic Planning Board Summit. This was a terrific fit as one of the FPA’s goals is to strengthen and expand there alliance of nearly 40—someday 50—state-based organizations like the FHA. They provide us with the training and strategic coordination to engage in elections, advance pro-family legislation, mobilize churches on critical issues and be a voice for biblical citizens within their states like South Dakota.
This Strategic Planning Board Summit discussed the Five S’s of an effective Board of Directors: Shared Values, Structure, Skills, Style and Staff. From this discussion came a number of exciting and needed ACTION STEPS which we will now begin to implement over time. The FHA Board senses we are now positioned to continue our growth as we champion Faith, Family and Freedom here in the great state of South Dakota. Be assured of this….our time together with Paul both on Friday, January 6 and Saturday, January 7, had been covered in sincere prayer and God showed up!
