Governance & Strategic Planning

Since its inception in 1996, the Kamloops Food Policy Council has been operating as a volunteer operation. Over the years, the contributions by the council to the community have been significant.  Demands on the organization by the community continue to increase as food sovereignty and security are being recognized as important by community policy makers, governments and other non-government organizations.

The Kamloops Food Policy Council came to recognize that our governance structure needed to adapt to this new reality to maintain our effectiveness as a valuable community agency.  In addition, the Council recognized that a new strategic plan needed to be developed to guide the operations in a focused and effective manner.  To this end, initiatives were undertaken in 2014 to update both the governance of the organization and to develop a strategic plan.

At the May 14, 2014 AGM, new bylaws for the Kamloops Food Policy Council were approved.  The constitution of the society remained unchanged.

With the governance update, the focus of the board turned to strategic planning.  Strategic planning is an inclusive process that clarifies what the purpose and focus of an organization is, what are its vision and goals, and how these goals can be achieved in a general way.  This document was developed through an extensive consultive process between September 2014 and March 2015.  At a Special General Meeting of the Kamloops Food Policy Council on March 4, 2015, the strategic plan was approved by consensus.
