In 2020, Committee kicked off some strategic planning work to build on the 2015 Strategic Plan, and set a course for the future.
Over three facilitated workshops, a group made up of some Committee members and Club members identified:
The prioritising activity in the strategic directions session revealed a shortage of evidence about what matters most to Club members, and to the wider community around us.
So the first action out of the strategy work was for Committee to run a formal survey of Club members and the wider community.
This was done in 2021 with questions designed by a professional researcher.
Thanks to extensive promotion it received 1,076 responses (almost as many as Yachting NZ’s nationwide survey the same year).
The survey data provide a clear picture of what people value about the Club and should continue, and highlights several strong mandates for change. You can read the Survey Report below.
Committee then made some decisions about what we should do with the different mandates, and how fast. Read the summary of this session below.
