The Chamber Board recognizes the importance of strategic planning through the provision of a sense of direction and measurable goals. They believe strategic planning is a tool that is useful for guiding day-to-day decisions and also for evaluating progress and changing approaches when moving forward The plan they have developed gives careful thought to the strategic objectives it outlines, and is backed up with realistic, thoroughly researched, quantifiable benchmarks for evaluating results.

The Board considered the current environment, where we are headed as an organization and opportunities for future improvement. They evaluated and adjusted both the Vision Statement and the Mission Statement.
