EOAN Strategic Planning 2022

The EOAN went through significant change in 2021 with new core funding from local municipalities, a new provincial grant, and significant membership revenues. Consequently, the catchment area and the scope of the programs were significantly expanded.

Members recently collaborated to develop the EOAN's 3-year strategic plan, including an assessment of the value, impact, services, and resources to understand member priorities and develop a path forward. The Board of Directors adopted the strategic plan as presented by the consultant Paradeigma.

The Board continues its work with the members in reviewing and implementing the consultant's recommendations. Members are invited to contact the Executive Director to join one of three committees to work on marketing, member services, and strategic development.
