In late 2022, the LBEP Board of Directors held a series of meetings to discuss current challenges and opportunities, potential new strategies, and future actions the Partnership should undertake to ensure ongoing success. These discussions allowed for an open conversation on how to best prioritize LBEP resources, ensuring the Partnership is focused on the most important initiatives and core commitments. These discussions resulted in the 2023 Strategic Framework, intended to guide activities over the coming years.

This Strategic Framework outlines an overarching path for Board members, partners, stakeholders and the community to chart the Partnership’s future course. It is the key milestone in the strategic planning process and includes detail about specific initiatives, committees, commitments and actions. The Strategic Framework drives the efforts of the organization.
