Strategic Planning is a process used to make thoughtful decisions about an organization’s future in order to ensure success. The process includes defining the organization’s direction for the next five years – a roadmap. The plan sets priorities and goals and states where the organization wants our energy and resources focused. Being strategic simply means “being clear about…” The process raises a series of questions that help our members examine and anticipate where the organization is going in the future and a roadmap of ideas and tools that will help us succeed.
