All INSP staff and board members (pictured below) took part in a dynamic, annual strategy meeting in Glasgow, 15th – 18th November. The INSP board meets each month by telephone conference with the Executive Director Lisa Maclean and twice each year for a face-to-face meeting in Glasgow, or as part of the annual conference. The five board members from Canada, USA, South Africa, Austria and Russia joined the staff team to review the work and finances for 2009 – 2010; evaluate projects, partnerships and strategies; and set INSP’s priorities for 2011.
The board were also introduced to a variety of INSP partners, including BBC Scotland, Herald & Times Group, Press Association and the Radisson Hotel. INSP Chairperson, Serge Lareault joined staff for an additional 2 days, along with Richard Turgeon, L’Itineraire’s Marketing and Communications Director, to discuss the next phase of INSP’s exciting Global Advertising Project. Thanks to Glasgow’s Mint Hotel (formerly ‘City Inn’) for sponsoring Serge and Richard’s visit.
