Proceedings kicked off with a review of the Strategic Plan Scorecard 2012. While this revealed a highly satisfactory performance in most categories, underperformance in certain key areas were noted and revisited.



Administration, Finance, Marketing, Communications, Fundraising, Facilities

Governance and Financial Management matters were the key focus. It was agreed that CHC’s Marketing Plan and related projects are dependent on efficient performance in these areas. Karl Smith was a great resource, providing concrete leads and referrals to cover the range of expertise required to bring about improvements.



Coaching, Leagues, Umpires

This session was facilitated by Armien Bobbs. Priority items were identified and flagged for immediate action. For example, the process for recruiting 2013 coaches/managers was to begin on Mon 19 November and the first phase should be completed by 6 December 2012.

All of this will be fleshed out and incorporated into a CHC Strategic Plan 2013.

In conclusion, a big thank you to Karl Smith for his expert facilitation, insights and valuable referrals. Also, thank you to all participants for their constructive contributions.

And lastly, thank you to the “hot bodies” who made it all happen – communications, venue preparation, eats and refreshments.
