September 8 Board Meeting: Unveiling the 2018 Strategic Plan!

At our next CGS Board Meeting, on Saturday, September 8, we will be unveiling the 2018 Strategic Plan, an ambitious proposal to reorganize and update the organization to better serve our members and secure our future.

The SPC has set out an aggressive Goals & Action Plan with six main goals and 43 proposed specific actions. Primary goals:
  1. Attract new members and meet the needs of existing members.
  2. Expand and improve our educational programs.
  3. Attract and retain more volunteers.
  4. Sustain our outreach efforts.
  5. Continue to improve our library
  6. Achieve a sustainable financial base for the society.
Members can read the entire plan on our website at "Minutes and Reports" under the Membership tab (login required). 

The plan has been nearly a year in the making, with input from numerous members and stakeholders. The Strategic Planning Committee began last fall by interviewing members on each of the active CGS committees to hear their thoughts about CGS’ strengths and weaknesses. The board has reviewed different parts of the plan at its last three board meetings. Now it is time to hear from YOU.

The September 8 board meeting will begin at 9:30 a.m. (30 minutes earlier than our usual time) and will be held in the conference room at CGS, 2201 Broadway, Suite LL2, Oakland. We welcome your interest and hope to see you there!
