Your Chapter's Strategic Plan

We've created a form to help you write your Chapter's strategic plan. Part of the reasoning to do this is to get your whole committee thinking along the same lines and to communicate that is a clear way. The form is set up so that once you've written your strategic plan it will be emailed to you and you'll be able to see other Chapter's plans for comparison.

Possible Chapter Goals

Here are a few measurable goals that you might set for your chapter might include (note the numbers listed here are examples; your chapter can set your own measurement value to your goals): 

  • Health
    • share 12-48 events per year with our community on our website calendar and social media channels. Why? Social isolation is a health matter. 
  • Economic Security
  • Representation
    • encourage local area political candidates to complete our #WomenInPolitics survey
    • ensure that at least 8 locally elected representatives are listed on Our #WomeninPolitics List
    • coordinate two (2) field trips to city hall a year to see how city council works during meetings
    • host two (2) InspireNow events a year to hear local women in politics to share their stories in order to engage women in your community who may be interested in politics.
  • Safety
    • host, attend and/or promote one or more fundraising event(s) for your local sexual assault centre. 
    • share information about male allies programs with your local sexual assault centre, e.g., Male Allies, Bettermen Ottawa, White Ribbon Canada, etc. Let's add to this list!
