As the NPCA began its 25th anniversary year, the Board held a very important meeting in Miami from January 30-February 1. Significant steps were taken towards improving services, strengthening programs and preparing the NPCA for the future.

A. The Board endorsed a new Strategic Action Plan for 2004-2011. This plan, which is available in Power Point format from the NPCA website at http://www.rpcv.org/NPCAStrategicPlan2004-2011.ppt, places particular emphasis on improving what NPCA offers its members and strengthening NPCA's relationship with its group affiliates. The plan is designed in three phases:

o Phase I: 2004, a plan for stabilization;

o Phase II: 2005-2008, a plan for growth;

o Phase III: 2009-2011, a plan for the future (leveraging the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Peace Corps community.

The Strategic Action Plan will be revised and updated as needed, with regular reporting on the progress being made. Individuals wishing to offer comments on the plan are welcome to send them to NPCA President Kevin Quigley at mailto:president@rpcv.org.

B. The Board considered changes to the Board's composition. Responding to a proposal made at its August 2003 meeting, the Board undertook a comprehensive examination of its size, composition and effectiveness.

In Miami the Board approved a draft plan to reduce its size, change its composition, and simplify its committee structure. This plan will be discussed with groups and membership and finalized by the time of the August 5-8 National Conference.

C. The Board approved a plan to revise NPCA's publications. Changes will be made to optimize resources and more closely align NPCA's publications with NPCA's mission.
