In the coming year, our focus is on bringing together UTRID’s operations for clarity, transparency, and alignment. We aim to structure our processes for easy communication and handoff, benefitting our board, committee members, and cherished members.

This entails documenting our operational procedures, transforming valuable insights into tangible processes. By streamlining our operations now, we’re laying a robust foundation for UTRID’s long-term success and sustainability.
