Work with Maine Humanities Council board and staff to develop a new 3- to 5-year plan for the organization

We’re seeking a strategic planning consultant or firm to work with Maine Humanities Council board and staff to develop a new 3- to 5-year plan for the organization. This plan will be a key tool for the MHC to navigate into post-COVID time and to deepen and strengthen our commitments to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

We hope to work with a consultant who will guide development of a plan that is at once visionary and practical. The MHC’s most recent strategic plan was approved in 2017, to run through 2020. The MHC adopted an additional Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Plan in 2019.

Building upon this past work, we hope this strategic planning process will: 

  1. Strengthen and sharpen our internal understanding of the Maine Humanities Council’s mission, vision, and values and how these support and direct organizational activities.
  2. Frame strategic priorities for the organization for the next 3-5 years.
  3. Lay the groundwork for detailed work planning and funding strategy, including measurable goals and criteria for measuring impact, as well as communication and development strategies.
