Board Priority Areas
The Board of Directors adopted a three year strategic plan in the summer of 2014. The plan was developed following engagement with members and various stakeholders followed by discussion by the Strategic Planning Group of the Board which also reviewed past research and strategic planning efforts.
The adopted plan centers on three strategic goals (Key Priority Areas). For each goal, objectives have been developed which will be used to measure progress being made. These objectives have been drafted by applying the approach referred to as SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time defined).
There are timelines attached to each objective. It is also expected that reporting to members will occur at fiscal year-end through GVCC’s Annual Report and this strategic plan will be reviewed on a macro basis by July 1, 2017.
