Every successful Company ever profiled in business journals has always been great at defining their mission, setting goals tactics to accomplish that mission and have established the ability to effectively monitor and evaluate their action plans along the way. That is called Strategic Planning and the MRC has a long history of conducting such a planning process. The following is the Theory and Overview of our Strategic Plan for 2012-2016:
The Meadowlands Regional Chamber has established itself as a credible and growing organization dedicated to providing its membership with an array of benefits that allow networking, relationship building, business education and promotional opportunities. Our public affairs advocacy has become a hallmark of this organization as we have filled a leadership vacuum on critical issues facing the Meadowlands region. This advocacy provides the membership with representation and a voice that may not otherwise be heard.
The Meadowlands Sports Complex is still the epicenter of economic activity and can provide renewed regional investment and job growth with the successful redevelopment of the entire complex as a nucleus. The Chamber itself, as an operating business, has grown substantially in the past few years and requires a focused business plan to continue on this path of growth and financial stability as we need to invest in plant, technology and human capital.
This strategic plan will identify ongoing goals that have become part of our “Advocacy DNA” as well as newly defined objectives that have been identified. The strategic planning process undertaken by the Executive Committee and Board of Directors of the MRC has spanned all of 2011. Multiple sessions facilitated by a team of two collaborating strategic planning consultants met with committee chairs, the general membership, the management team staff and the Board leadership to identify not only the goals but also layers of obstacles and solutions which will lead to the successful implementation of this strategic plan.
This document will guide the MRC through 2016 with the plan outlining Critical Goal Categories, Specific Goals, Action/Tactics, Implementation Timelines and designated staff / committee responsibility. Specific Goals will be outlined periodically by the MRC Executive Committee with success and completion being documented. Lastly, the plan focuses on the core values that comprise the mission of our Chamber
