SHELL LAKE -- Representatives of Shell Lake Arts Center's Operational Board and staff met with Bern Hapke, retired General Manager of 3M’s Food Safety Business, on January 9th, 2018, to begin a series of strategic planning sessions.  Hapke, who has previously led the development of strategic and operational plans within organizations such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the International Commission for Microbiological Standards for Foods (ICMSF), will be working with the group to set future priorities for the Arts Center and ensure that staff and other stakeholders are working toward common goals. 

Decisions made in the strategic planning process will help Shell Lake Arts Center guide its future programming and organizational development.  Hapke stated, “The Arts Center has a long and successful history in helping young people explore and enhance their musical artistry. I am happy to be invited to help the Center build on that and to create a workable plan to enable and shape its future.”
