At least once every two years, ICN Board of Directors will review its goals and objectives toward achieving its mission and will complete a performance and effectiveness assessment of its programs based on that review
Such an assessment will be conducted under the authority of the entire ICN Committee of the Board.

4. At the conclusion of this process, ICN will revise the goals and objectives for the Foundation, as needed, for the upcoming term and will suggest means of measuring them. This assessment will also impact ICN's ongoing 10 year plan regarding its goals
and objectives as well.
