- Planning Days
Book now to hold a Planning Day, facilitated in-person or online by one of our expert consultants.
Holding a Planning Day will focus and re-energise your association. Planning in the context of an association or charity needs to be practical, straightforward and provide a guide for future Board meeting agendas.
Associations Forum will:
- Develop the agenda for the Planning Day in consultation with the association
- Prepare the necessary documents and framework prior to the Planning Day
- On the day, respectfully drive discussions forward at an appropriate pace
- Achieve tangible results through a live-developed document by the close of proceedings.
Attendees depart with a sense of clarity and accomplishment, knowing there is shared knowledge of a common strategic direction and next steps.
Having a current and straightforward plan is crucial for associations getting things done. Sometimes an unanticipated result is the motivation and positive vibe from Board Directors and CEOs who say
“Aha, now I know exactly where the association is going.”
