Based on the results of the needs assessment, boards' strengths and weaknesses as well as priority areas for shared development of new resources were identified. The continued process of developing PIM resources in a collective manner and sharing accordingly will continue in the 2012-2013 year via regional meetings that provide opportunities for continued building of shared understandings around PIM regulations and requirements as well as working sessions for developing appropriate resources. MISA Leaders of member boards will be expected to disseminate the information to senior leadership within their boards with a view to promoting a PIM culture within their boards.

The PIM team will ensure that all resources and related materials are uploaded to the Northeastern PNCs website.
