Strategic Plan

Here at MERIT Resource Services we are always trying to improve on how we do things. In our efforts to grow and to improve, we have developed a Strategic Plan with input from Management,the Board of Directors, persons served, community partners, stakeholders and other interested parties.

In this effort we have scheduled a Strategic Planning retreat for our Management Team and Board of Directors to review our current strategies and update our plan.

We are interested in feedback on how we could improve services and have provided this feedback form page for you to submit suggestions and ideas.
