The Planning Committee is typically made up of 3-4 Board members who are committed to leading the organization in the development of its Strategic Plan and to ensuring the organization implements the Plan once it’s completed. The Committee should also include the Executive Director or lead staff person. Key senior program staff may also participate.

The Strategic planning process varies considerably from one organization to the next depending on a variety of factors, including the organization’s size and age, staffing levels, the existence of a previous Strategic Plan and the organization’s structure. The Planning Committee’s role includes identifying the appropriate level of planning that is needed and the planning process that makes most sense for the organization.
