Zones 25 & 26

Email Business Planning

Strategic Initiatives:
Create a program that would pick up where Club Visioning and other Strategic Planning Programs end.

Ensure that the clubs complete written plans that clearly state the actions to be taken, who is responsible, when they will be completed and allow for tracking of the progress being made at certain milestones.

Provide transparent reporting that the club can use to share progress as well as promote the continuity of their plans.

Goal 1:

By April 1, 2014 the Zone 25 & 26 Planning committee will develop and beta test at the club level a model that will allow clubs to develop SMART Goals for each of the club’s defined areas of planning.
