Just saw this come across the ASCLA-L listserv. If you have any information, respond to Karen directly at 

klainslie@mac.com

==============================

I am looking for a directory or list of consultants who can facilitate
strategic planning in state of Indiana. I am targeting the geographic area that
surrounds the state: Ohio, Michigan, Illinois or Kentucky. Does ASCLA compile a
list of consultants?

You can reply off list or if it makes sense, I can compile list and make it
available here.

Thanks.
