    The South Carolina Network of Children's Advocacy Centers Board of Directors will participate in a two day Strategic planning  activity that will be used to set priorities, focus energy and resources, strengthen operations, ensure that employees and other stakeholders are working toward common goals, establish agreement around intended outcomes/results, and assess and adjust the organization's direction in our overall mission of empowering our communities to help child abuse victims. It is our hope that this strategic planning effort will produce fundamental decisions and actions that will shape and guide where we are going, what is needed to make progress, and determine how we will know if our efforts are successful.
