Advancing Mission – Building Sustainability
Strategic Plan Update – Sub-committee Chairs Named
Last month, the Steering Committee was announced; this month, leaders for the sub-committees that are tasked with addressing the three initiatives have been named and they are now at work putting their teams together.
Initiative #1: Leadership Development
Kat Vanden Heuvel will lead the design of a program to identify, recruit and prepare new leaders from within our membership to meet the increasing demand for WRWF-qualified leaders.
Initiative #2: Governance Standards
Gail Landis, current Chair of the WRWF Governance Committee, will lead the team tasked with establishing a set of standards to ensure sound governance within a volunteer community. This will provide guidance to the board in its fiduciary, strategic and generative roles.
Initiative #3: Operational Standards
To ensure operational consistency and accountability, Carrie Morrow will take the lead in creating a WRWF “operations manual” – a necessary detail in a volunteer-driven organization.
“Carrie, Kat and Gail deserve a big round of appreciation for their willingness to step up to a heavy lift on behalf of our Foundation,” Steering Committee Chair Terri Bullock said. “This work may not be flashy, but ensuring that we have a solid organizational structure in place is critical to the longevity of our mission and future effectiveness.”
Updates on the Strategic Plan work will be shared monthly through the News Brief and periodically via email. Please reach out to the Steering Committee if you have any questions.
