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

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

Philanthropic Programs: • By the end of May 2020, all programs will demonstrate measurable qualitative and quantitative outcomes. • Increase number of children served through Operation School Bell by 5% per year over the next five years. • Determine additional needs of our communities and implement new programs or expand existing programs to meet these needs. Membership • By June 2020, increase chapter membership by 5% per year over the next five years. • By June 2020, involve members/volunteers for increased effectiveness in our chapter and community resulting in 2.5% increase in service hours, each year, over the next five years. • By June 2020, increase organizational strength of our chapter by recruiting members with exceptional skills in organizational management and leadership. Resource Development • By June 2020, increase the chapter funding by 5% annually to provide enhanced services to the community. Communications • Increase awareness within Snohomish County businesses and communities about ALE and its programs. Capacity Building • By June 2020, develop organizational structure that promotes succession planning in significant leadership positions, and ensures highest and best use of our member/volunteer time. • Continue to promote accountability, accuracy and transparency to ensure chapter long-term viability.

• Implement an outreach model for recruiting new members by targeting large employers within the county and coordinating with employer human resource departments to provide information about volunteer opportunities with Assistance League of Everett to employees and near-term retirees. • Implement outreach to PTA's county-wide to provide information about volunteer opportunities with Assistance League of Everett. • Meet with school districts to determine ability to provide information about Assistance League of Everett to school parents on Parent Orientation night. We also understand that to achieve our philanthropic program goals we must continue to increase the revenue of the organization. By June 2020, we will increase the chapter funding by 5% annually to provide enhanced services to the community. Our resource development strategies are: • Increase thrift store revenue by 5% annually by 2020. • Implement outreach to school districts to encourage school staff to name Assistance League of Everett as recipient organization during annual United Way campaign.

We understand that all organizations must continually carry out capacity building to ensure the overall health and vibrancy of the organization. Our capacity building goals are: • Enhance the strategic planning process through a facilitated board retreat that will focus on Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT analysis). • Update skills matrix to a current technology platform that will enhance its utilization in matching member/volunteer skill sets to highest and best use within the chapter. • Design a succession plan for each significant leadership role utilizing the concept of vice chairman who would work under chairman for one year before assuming full chair responsibilities. This should “spread the work" of each chairman position and provide for smoother transition at the expiration of a chairman's term. • Identify members/volunteers with strong management, organizational, or leadership skills and determine best ways to utilize those skills within the chapter. • By June 2020, develop organizational structure that promotes succession planning in significant leadership positions, and ensures highest and best use of our member/volunteer time.
