Board of Governors Planning Retreat, June 15-17, 2005, The Commonwealth of Learning: Past, Present and Future By: Sir John Daniel, President & CEO, Commonwealth of Learning // Members of the Board, Colleagues: // I am very pleased to speak to you this evening. These annual Board meetings are very special events for the Commonwealth of Learning. We would like you to meet more often and gain a deeper sense of ownership of COL than you can get from a single annual meeting, written quarterly reports and occasional contacts with the Chairman, the President and other COL staff. However, these meetings are expensive. Setting aside part of this event as a Board Retreat is one way of getting maximum benefit from having you together. // I shall comment first on the format of the retreat. Then I shall recall for you the milestones in our planning process. Having explained the process, I shall review the context for our planning. Setting the context is the primary purpose of these remarks, which I have called The Commonwealth of Learning: Past, Present and Future. I shall attempt a broad overview of COL to set the stage for your discussions in the retreat tomorrow.
