In November we asked you to give us your input and take a little survey. The survey was designed to give the board input from our members and friends on the direction of the DRBC. The results of the member and friends survey were then used at the board planning retreat in December. We thought we should share the organizational goals the board has set for 2011 and the results of the survey with you here. As you can see the 2011 goals match well with the input we received from the survey. More information will be forth coming on some of the goals.
