Draft Strategic Plan for the Kamloops Food Policy Council – Your input is requested!

To further strengthen the governance of the Kamloops Food Policy Council, a strategic plan is being developed.  This plan articulates who we are as an organization, what we wish to accomplish, and how we wish to undertake our tasks.  This document will provide a general guide to our organization for the next 5 years.  In addition, it will provide the context for more detailed annual plans which will guide our activities on a year to year basis.

The KFPC board has drafted a Vision, Mission and Strategic Goals for our organization.  Now we need to hear from KFPC members.  Are we on the right track?  Did we leave something important out?

Please review this document kfpc_strategic_plan_nov14_draft and provide comments by email to dave.whiting@shaw.ca by November 28.  It is the intent of the board to bring a strategic plan to the membership for approval at a general meeting in 2015.
