Plan of Work
Every organization needs a plan which sets direction and establishes priorities. A plan defines the organization’s view of success and prioritizes the activities that will make this view a reality. Therefore, the following document aims to focus the Texas Midwest Community Network’s (TMCN) energies in such a way that creates a sense of continuity. In doing so, goals will be met, programs will be completed and the activities of the Network become measurable in such a way that communicates value to the communities for whom we serve.
