Journeys, June 2019, Strategic Plan

New Strategic Plan Adopted

In the board meeting prior to the start of the conference, a strategic plan, A Path for Travelers Aid, was adopted for 2019-2022. In adopting the plan, the board updated the organization’s mission statement: Travelers Aid International “is to aid people in transit who are in distress, through our direct services and through services provided by our members.”
The plan set forth three goals:
  1. Achieve and ensure continued financial sustainability by improving funding streams and ending each fiscal year with a surplus
  2. Retain and expand membership
  3. Strengthen the organization to support all programs.
During conference workshops on Wednesday and Friday, attendees offered suggestions on how to retain and expand the membership. A staff working group was formed to assist in drafting an implementation plan to meet the three goals.
