We have mission, vision, values, organizational goals, and 3 years of programs and measurements for each program. However, we reached a brick wall as many of our programs overlap a few goal areas. We need a better format to help us present and someone to tell us where the holes are instead of our funder which we are scheduled to meet to share our plan with in about a month. Who can help us look great but have a plan we can put to use!
We always see opportunities to help our members but have a very small capacity with a staff of two. We want to make sure we are using that capacity in a way that best serves our members and the guidance of a plan would help us figure out what is critical and what is noise.
To strengthen arts and culture in South Jersey to improve quality of life, tourism, education, economic and community development, and health and wellness.
Joell gave us everything we needed and knew the steps to take to get ready for strategic planning. We went from thinking we were going to do the whole plan on our own to hiring a consultant. We used him to help us know what to look for in a consultant. He rolled with our changes and was always prepared.
It was a pleasure working with the SJCA team. I look forward to seeing how SJCA continues to invest in transforming the cultural landscape of South Jersey in the coming years.
