The Society for Conservation GIS developed a Strategic Plan for 1999-2001 on November 9, 1999 by the Board of Directors of the Society. The updated plan replaces the previously adopted plan from January 22, 1999. The strategic plan is evaluated and updated on an annual basis by the Board of Directors and interested SCGIS members.
A new addition to the Strategic Plan is currently in the works.
