Strategic Planning

The Crowden Music Center is undertaking a strategic planning process to identify organizational goals and priorities for its next several years. We have engaged strategic planning consultant Miriam Abrams to facilitate the process, which will culminate in June 2020.

The Strategic Planning Design Team, which includes staff members, board members, and parent representatives, is working to develop, monitor, and coordinate the process. Members of the Design Team have been designated as liaisons for specific Crowden constituencies. Members of the Crowden community are encouraged to contact their designated liaison with any questions about or input into the process. Design Team members are listed below.
