Humane Society of Elkhart County
In 2019, the Humane Society of Elkhart County (HSEC) hired a new Executive Director, Rob LaRoy. Our CEO, Jess Koscher, had facilitated a board retreat for the organization when they were launching their capital campaign. LaRoy wished to revisit the direction of the organization now that their new building was built. As an organization that was known for its animal protection work, the board decided to focus more on community building and adoptions.
In 2021, Koscher was again invited to facilitate a board retreat. The focus of this retreat was to determine how to use the organization’s resources to the full extent. The retreat set them on the path for their next strategic plan.
- Review with its board the mission, vision, and alignment
- Explore new avenues for messaging and programming to better communicate services
- Explore physical, intellectual, and volunteer resources and determine how best to utilize them.
