Board wants help with big goals

By Kristin Kinnamon, board member

The Sharing Wheels Board spent the last six months of 2023 in a strategic planning process facilitated by the Community Foundation of Snohomish County.

Board members found it fairly easy to agree on our updated vision (for the world we’d like to help create) and our top 3 goals for the coming few years (see below). What will be harder is implementing our strategies and tactics to reach those goals.

We welcome volunteers and supporters to be part of our efforts. You might join a committee, give input at a stakeholder meeting, or share your professional expertise or community connections.

Your first chance to be involved is at our Annual Meeting, 6:30 p.m. Jan. 17 at the shop. Please RSVP if you are able to attend.

You can also email Executive Director Christy Cowley or talk to Shop Manager Ed Roos in person at the shop.
