NTHMP Strategic Workshop
Recommendations to the CC
 Approve NTHMP Strategic Plan
 Grant applications need to demonstrate how they will support
  NTHMP performance measures
 Sub-Committees will need to be strengthened and be held
  more accountable for the success of the NTHMP and the
  implementation of the Strategic Plan
       Sub-Committee TORs need to be reviewed, adjusted and
        followed to ensure the success of this plan
       Sub-Committees should receive funding to support strategy
 NTHMP Charter and RoP will need to be reviewed and
  adjusted to ensure successful strategy implementation
