A strategic plan is a working document that guides and strengthens the activities of an organization. Goals and strategies are designed to enable the organization to plan effectively for the future. The GFWC of Tennessee Executive Committee is responsible for reviewing and making changes in the plan, if needed, at the beginning of each administration. The Strategic Plan identifies six major issues: Membership, Leadership, Public Awareness, Special Programs and Community Service Programs, Financial Stability, Management and Governance. Each issue has clear goal statements, objectives to support the goal, and strategies for achieving each objective. The plan is designed to guide clubs by providing opportunities for its members to serve their communities more effectively through organized activities, development of leadership skills, participation in continued learning and enrichment, and cultivating lasting friendships.
