PLANET Introduces New Governance Structure
Dear TEAM PLANET,
TEAM PLANET these two words define the essence of the new PLANET governance that all PLANET members and staff members work together to achieve the goals of the PLANET Promise to deliver value to our association and the industry, grow the green industry workforce, expand our position as partner of choice, advance marketplace recognition, and influence through proactive advocacy.
The new governance redefines PLANET as a "flat organization" with everyone having an equal say and an equal vote from membership to the staff, the management team, and the board. It levels the playing field and charges the PLANET board to be more strategically oriented, spending more of its time addressing "bigger" issues that will have a long-term impact on our members and the industry.
TEAM PLANET is working, which means our new governance is working. Experience it for yourself in our leadership meetings and at our events. Working together we can make a difference.
