WHEN TO PLAN STRATEGIC PLANNING Chapter meetings, seminars, events, activities defined Current committees: –Are they active? –Are they functioning effectively? –Are they a wise use of resources & time?
WHY A COMMITTEE? WHO WILL CHAIR? For on-going committees review the strengths and weaknesses Has the meeting, seminar, event, activity grown or decreased? New Committee: Worker Bees….the right worker bees!
HOW OUTLINE WITH FRAMEWORK Purpose Goal Chair Structure
COMMITTEE VS TASK FORCE WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE? Committees are ongoing as a vital part of the Chapter. –Membership –Events Task Force is specific task focus. –Survey –Special event
ALIGNMENT VS AGREEMENT THE TWAIN CAN WORK COHESIVELY YET NEVER HAVE TO CROSS Total agreement is rare in anything Focus on solutions If it is personal preference, learn to yield Your can be dead right Dont take it personal even when it is
