Surveys and suggestion forms
A large portion of the goals during this meeting was to solicit input from IIACC members about spreading information to stakeholders about the work we’re doing. If you did not have a chance to fill out any of these surveys, they will remain open until the end of December 2018.
In addition to planning for the future, plans were laid out to improve the IN Innovations section of this website. Going forward, we would like to have ongoing highlights of groups and individuals that are supporting the goals in the Indiana Comprehensive plan. This is in addition to the DISI Award,which is a yearly recognition of an outstanding community member/group working to achieve at least one of the 8 goals.
