On July 26th and 27th in Salina member city representatives, KMEA staff, and Steve VanderMeer, the moderator, worked on developing a new 5 year strategic plan for the agency. This exercise helps define the needs of KMEA members from power supply, member services, supply chain, and operational needs of their utilities to name a few, and how KMEA can support those initiatives. This exercise also develops the needs of KMEA from staffing, facilities, technology, equipment, etc. to help support our members. This plan will be presented to the Executive Committee in the future and ultimately presented to the full membership for acceptance. The goal of Strategic Plan for KMEA is to be the trusted partner providing industry-leading service and innovative solutions to our member communities.
