In fall of 2017, the Boards of Directors for the Richland Area Chamber of Commerce and Richland Community Development Group engaged the services of Cathi Hight, of Hight Performance Group to assist them in drafting a new three-year joint strategic plan to set the direction of both organizations. A series of surveys were completed with Chamber Members, community leaders, and the Boards and staff members of both organizations. The Boards and staff members of both organizations met for a day-long retreat to set the strategic direction of the affiliated organizations.
