Visioning Project

Do you want to help us identify priorities as we move forward with our plans for the future of the Theosophical Society?

Initiated by our national president in February 2008, a "Strategic Visioning Committee" was formed to consider the future health and well-being of the TSA.

Board members are making presentations all over the Section and soliciting input from members. If you have not been able to participate, we ask for your valuable contribution. Please fill out a questionnaire that is available online and can be returned to us by either mail or e-mail. For further information and how to participate, please visit Visioning Project any time before January 15, 2010.
