Goals & Strategy

Learn about the organization's key goals, strategies, capabilities, and progress.

Charting impact

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

Our goal is to increase membership by adding fifteen new members each year. This will enable us to increase our community outreach by utilizing more current methods of contact.

We are reaching out to other organizations whose members may have an interest in participating in our activities and programs. Potential new member coffees have been historically successful in recruiting new members. We are also in the process of developing a website and investigating other social media opportunities.

We have an active membership committee focused on achieving our goal of increasing our existing membership. Our current Strategy addresses the need to modernize and update our organization.

So far we have developed an effective Strategic Plan. We have created a format for action plans and a method of reporting our progress to our membership. Continuing to implement and evaluate our Strategic Plan, expanding our membership and implementing our mission statement of "Transforming the lives of children and adults through community programs".
