Over the last year, the Coho/US board has been working on the
strategic plan for 2010 and beyond.

This is on their radar - they've spoke of "Best of Coho-L." as well as
a comprehensive approach to organizing more of the vast resources that
are available online - presuming you can spend LARGE amounts of time
doing the research and compiling the results.

The plan will be published on the website in the coming months.
