New Strategic Plan
Date to be determined.
. Your investment in the chamber is one that we value a great deal and hope that you do to. There are a variety of reasons that each of you are part of the chamber including networking opportunities, giving back to the community, marketing, credibility and more.
I am committed to delivering real, measurable value in membership. This means more professional development and networking opportunities, better visibility and recognition within the community and advocating for all of our communities’ businesses; small, medium or large.
We need you to stand with us and have the collective voice of our membership heard. We work best when we all stand together.
As you know we already have some great membership benefits in place and hope that moving forward you utilize them to the fullest extent
Working from our current Chamber resources and goals of the board of directors we have developed a plan outlining the Chamber’s strategic focus for the next year.
After the initial decision to move forward with a strategic plan we began looking at strategic priorities, current and future initiatives. The board met numerous times over the past 6 months to design a focused approach to implement the following 4 agreed upon strategic priorities:
- Membership Growth
- Membership Development
- Community and Governmental Affairs
- Marketing, Communication and Chamber Strategy
After confirming the strategic priorities, our current and future initiatives were placed into the strategic plan where they fit best.
Each Strategic priority will also be its own Committee moving forward. One of our board members will be the chair for each of the four committees. Our hope is that each of you as investors in this chamber will help us by joining a committee to aide your chamber, community, and your business or organization.
At the end of each year, the Chamber will evaluate its success by measuring member investment, retention, and new member engagement and community and governmental involvement. The plan will be a living documents and will work with our mission statement and bylaws.
I appreciate the board of directors for their dedication, vision and commitment to ensuring our chamber remains relevant and impactful in our area.
