Forever NCL - Voice of the Sustainer
Longtime Sustainers, Linda Martens and Ann Gibbins, reflect on their nearly 75 years of involvement with NCL by sharing their best memories. They explore how NCL strengthened their mother-daughter bonds, an experience they are excited to share with their daughters, granddaughters and a future generation. As NCL nears its centennial anniversary, Linda and Ann are proud to be NCL members and share their thoughts on NCL’s next 100 years.
This past year, NCL’s national board established a framework to honor the work of those who built its foundation over the past 95+ years and to proactively respond to the changes in environmental factors and philanthropic delivery so that NCL is prepared for the next 100 years.
As we commit to remain relevant, we must ensure that we are prepared, dynamic, and innovative in the work we do. This framework led to the creation of a bold vision statement and an updated strategic plan called Envision 100. This plan is designed to:
- Simplify by optimizing our utilization of resources including professional staff and national volunteers, along with improving organizational effectiveness and efficiencies.
- Impact by increasing membership opportunities, expanding the organization’s capacity to meet community needs and strongly supporting programming and services.
- Enhance by elevating the membership experience through building our stakeholder engagement and expanding brand awareness and external support of our vision and mission.
