Strategic Planning Day:
On the 8th January 2011, we had the WA Branch Strategic Planning Day, which was hosted by Dame Monica Holmes OAM.
The WA Branch achieved many things over the last year, when we sat together and evaluated last years strategic plan we had achieved 90% of the plan, which was excellent: Highlights of the year included:
20% increase in local membership
Road show informing members of legislative changes / maternity reforms
Hospital site visits to increase College visibility and disseminate information
2 Major education sessions
Social Media - Facebook page and blog site
Support Go-Girl Australia
Time for a break a cuppa:
Monica guided us through what our strategic direction would be for the next 12 – 24 months. Keeping in line with National Strategic Plan for 2015 which include five strategic priorities:-
Advocacy for Midwives and Midwifery
Setting Professional Practice and Education Standards
Ensuring Access to Continuity of midwifery Care
Ensuring Good Governance.
We identified four key areas:
Education and Research and Public Relations.
These goals will form the framework for the WA Branch’s activity over the next few months.
The end of the day; time to shave a drink and have a laugh....
