Strategic Planning Goals:

There were also a few glitches in the conference breakfast response software that need to be addressed. This goal relates to SIOP strategic goal 3: satisfied members
Action: The Committee will enlist the help of the AO to add some additional instructions and guides to make the nomination process clearer and to remedy any remaining issues with the breakfast software (August 1, 2009).
- Goal: Administer Fellowship nomination and election process. This goal relates to SIOP strategic goals 3 and 4: satisfied members, increased collaboration, and decreased perceptions of fissure.

- Goal: Plan and carry out activities for Fellows at SIOP conference. This goal relates to SIOP strategic goals 3 and 4: satisfied members, increased collaboration, and decreased perceptions of fissure.
