New Year - New YOU!
My wish is that this year will bring you much happiness, new goals, and many new achievements to help you to reach new heights. It is time to get motivated and set yourself up for success in 2021 by setting one specific, achievable goal. Think about how to include that goal in your life - what you need to do to make it happen, and then put a timeline with it. Lastly, seek out an accountability partner who will hold you accountable in achieving your goal.
Here are a few helpful tips to get you started:
Take Time to Reflect. We learned alot of hard lessons this past year.
Set Achievable Realistic Goals. To set goals that will really make an impact on your life you must first prioritize what you want to achieve.
Solicit Feedback – Identify Areas of Opportunity. Setting goals should not be done in a vacuum.
Hold YOURSELF Accountable.
The WICTGO Board is currently working on our Model Chapter Business Plan for 2021 to ensure that we continue to provide key updates and great programming while enhancing our tools and resources. Our goal this year is to be a vessel for our members to enhance their current skill-sets through educational and leadership development trainings through webinars, virtual programming, mentorship, and much more.
Our vision for our Chapter Board is to provide a place where leaders convene to identify and discuss areas of opportunities, exchange proven best practices, support chapter efforts and initiatives and strengthen our operational excellence in these six core areas as we travel on the road to success.
Primary Focus for 2021:
•Membership – Double expectations
•Programming – Meet members expectations
•Finance – Increase funding and meet budget goals
•Governance – Effectively conduct our affairs
•Marketing and Communications – Send strong messages
•Philanthropy – Support continued growth and development
