Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

Our goals are several: to find members willing to help plan activities, increase membership, raise funds, offer more member activities and benefits, as well as increase educational and civic works.

Target new members, use limited advertising, and get the word out.
Identify civic projects for short-term and long-term
Schedule activities more than 3 months in advance
Seek donations for the upcoming year in advance
Create more committees as our membership increases

1-2 small civic projects annually
2-3 workshops annually
2-3 speakers annually
2-3 visits annually
Right now we can manage at most 30 members and do not want to grow too fast so that we are not providing adequate support for our membership.

Attendance at events, membership numbers, gross revenue, word-of-mouth, Likes on facebook, and blog readership

We had 3 new activities and projects for 2018. Hoping to get the word out in 2019!
