Don’t Miss Thursday’s GDC Strategic Planning Work Session

Mark your calendar and plan to attend this important meeting in which the Greenbelt Development Corporation (GDC) Board of Directors considers and updates GDC’s strategic roadmap. GDC is GHI’s wholly-owned for-profit subsidiary and income from GDC (generated by the Parkway Apartments) helps reduce member fees.

November 29 (Thursday) @ 7 p.m.
GHI Administration Building Board Room
1 Hamilton Place, Greenbelt, MD 20770

(!) Why it matters The Board began a strategic planning review of GDC operations in September 2017 but deferred further planning due to other priorities. Thursday’s meeting will continue that work and the objectives include:

a. Reviewing the strategic objectives regarding 1) GDC’s organization as a corporation, 2) how to meet GDC’s financial challenges, 3) the Parkway Apartments infrastructure, and 4) which business opportunities should GDC pursue.

b. Establishing GDC’s goals and objectives for the next two to five years.

c. Establishing GDC’s action plan and priorities during the next year.

Everything members care about (forested spaces, co-op revenue, frame and masonry home maintenance, etc.) could be part of the committee’s focus so its work is worth your time and sustained attention.
