The American Iris Society Strategic Planning Committee began in early 2016. The committee was composed of:

Chair: Andi Rivarola
Jody Nolin
Judy Keisling
Cathy Egerer
Linda Wilke
Bob Pries
Gary White
Gerry Snyder
Wayne Messer
Paul Black

Recently added members are:
David Cupps

Initial focus was on reviewing and updating the AIS Mission Statement. The Board of Directors adopted the new Mission Statement at their May 2016 meeting. Published in the Irises Bulletin Summer 2016, it is:

The Mission of The American Iris Society is to organize and disseminate knowledge of the genus iris, while fostering its preservation, enjoyment and continued development..

How to help members forming new affiliates was one of the topics surfaced during this discussion. A summary page was created on the Iris Encyclopedia for this topic. It contains links to forms and other suggestions which were already available within AIS, just not in one location. It can be, and is being, updated easily because it is part of the Iris Wiki. You can see Forming a New Affiliate here and add information or suggestions. Thank you for your help.

We also developed a series of long term and short term goals. A part of this was sharing some of them with you on the Iris Encyclopedia here asking for your help. Please continue to give us your thoughts! And if you would like to give us ongoing feedback, see this call for volunteers.
