STS is starting the process of developing our new strategic plan and because this is fundamental to how we operate, we are keen to get the views of as many people as possible. The Board have agreed that our next plan will take an 8-year approach from 2019-27 to reflect that we are now in a stronger position to take a longer-term view, but also recognising that the matters to be addressed will all require a long-term commitment if we are to make meaningful progress.
Stage 1 – Have Your Say
During this process, we will be consulting with those in the shooting community along the way. For Stage 1 we are looking to create a Mission statement, Vision statement and Strapline for STS as currently we don’t have any of these, something that we would like to address as they help set the benchmark for what we do. For those unfamiliar with these terms, we have provided a summary of what these statements are for:
- Mission Statement: This should clearly communicate what it is we do (as a governing body). More information and examples can be found at: https://topnonprofits.com/examples/nonprofit-mission-statements/
- Vision Statement: This sets the picture of what we are trying to achieve/where we are trying to get to in the long term. More information and examples of a vision statement can be found at: https://topnonprofits.com/examples/vision-statements/
- Strapline: A strapline appears at the bottom of title and sums up the essence of the company. Read more: http://www.carolinegibson.co.uk/headline-slogan-strapline-difference
We have some drafts of these statements which we would like people to review and provide your feedback on. Please don’t be put off by terms mission statement and vision statement – these may sound like business speak and be disengaging, but the substance behind them is important and will set the tone and direction for the strategic plan.
Feedback will only take about 5 minutes and can be provided in the window below. We require all feedback to be provided by Friday 29th June.
If you experience any display problems with window above, the consultation can also be accessed using the following link: https://scottargetshoot.typeform.com/to/KSDukf
As well as your feedback, for Stage 1 we will also be looking for feedback from our own staff and directors, as well as key partners. We will use all this feedback to prepare a first draft of our plan in July and then send a draft out to the membership in August for comments. We will be following this up in September through consultation meetings in various parts of Scotland so people have a chance to have their say in person. We will then be presenting our plan to sportscotland in October. We will make some updates following this meeting before sending a final draft out in November for final comments. The Board will then sign off the strategy in December.
On behalf of the Board, thank you for helping us with this process and we look forward to receiving your views for this stage and over the coming months.
