OBOA Strategic Plan 2012+Published: 2012-01-12,
On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Ontario Building Officials Association, I am pleased to announce that our association now has a strategic plan to guide its decision-making and operations over the coming years.
In developing the Plan, the Board initiated a comprehensive and inclusive outreach process, involving participation from not only the Board, but the members, Chapters and key external stakeholders as well, to answer five key questions:
• Where are we?
• What do we have to work with?
• Where do we want to be?
• How do we get there?
• How do we stay there?
The chart found in the centrefold of this publication lays out the core of the Plan that was unanimously approved by the Board in August 2011. The core consists of the vision, mission, strategic priorities and strategic goals of the Plan. It reflects what we heard from association members, Chapters and external stakeholders in the consultations conducted in spring 2011. The unanimous support of the Board demonstrates a strong belief that the Plan sets the stage for OBOA to achieve its full potential and take Ontario’s building official profession to the next level.
The Board is committed to ensuring that OBOA Strategic Plan 2012+ is translated into action, and that we make steady progress in the years ahead. On behalf of your Board of Directors, I would like to thank all those who participated in the development of the core of OBOA Strategic Plan 2012+, as well as Frank Nicholson, the consultant involved with the project. The Board and CAO are excited about what lies ahead for the Ontario Building Officials Association.
