Bringing Associations Together To Boost Performance


Planning Days

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.

10 steps for successful Planning Days

Associations Forum has extensive knowledge of the governance and operations of associations and has good facilitation skills and methods. Through our experience, we are able to provide relevant input to discussions based upon our experiences and observations of other organisations.
