Strategic Planning Reports 2012-2014

About these reports

To write these reports, the Strategic Planning Committee surveyed the current staff and volunteers and the retired staff and volunteers of each committee or workgroup, interviewed the chairs, and conducted follow-up interviews with any staff and volunteers (current or retired) who wished to speak with us further.

Everything in the reports is based on the data collected from committee or workgroup members. Responses were synthesized into summaries of the strengths and challenges that staff and volunteers (both current and retired) identified, and recommendations for change based on their suggestions. More information about this process is included in the reports themselves.

Before coming to you, the reports have been reviewed by the respective committee chairs and the Board, and copyedited by the Communications Committee. The purpose of this was to correct any factual errors we might have made and to solicit feedback before the wider release. No data collected from any surveys or interviews were changed or removed from the report as a result of these reviews.


We hope that you find the reports interesting, and very much welcome your feedback! If you have any questions or wish to contact the committee, get in touch with us through our contact form.

Please note that these reports incorporate internal stakeholders only, so while comments through our contact form from stakeholders outside the OTW will be read and discussed (and possibly taken into account for future reports, as well as the next round of strategic planning), external stakeholder opinion will not be incorporated into future revisions of these reports.

All contact we receive is kept to a high standard of confidentiality, and we’d be happy to discuss that with you if you have any concerns.
