We all know that a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats) Analysis and revised Mission Statement aren’t enough to suffice as a “Strategic Plan”. But, in today’s fast-paced credit union environment, what topics should be part of your Strategic Planning Session? Should planning be an annual event or ongoing activity? Does an outside facilitator make it a better session and what if we can’t afford one? Every credit union has different initiatives planned and underway that deserve attention at the strategic level. And, there are many ways to produce a productive strategic plan. “High priority” or “big ticket” items easily make the session agenda, but how much time, and ultimately resources, do you devote to some of your core operations? Topics such as succession planning, volunteer recruitment, regulatory compliance implementation, and personnel training. These less flashy operational items can often make the difference between having an effective strategic plan and one that “looked good on paper, but…” Don’t let your Strategic Plan become an examiner finding, join us for an evening of learning and sharing as we highlight how to create a successful strategic plan! Who Should Attend? Credit union supervisory committee members and board of directors. About the Presenter: Julie A.
