Five Year Plans & Priority Lists
Five Year Plans are currently being distributed. In order to convey a consistent message to our chapters and receive their feedback, we are conducting calls with each chapter to discuss their plan. Each Five Year Plan includes projects to complete, items to purchase or distribution of funds that Properties hopes to provide chapters during the coming years. The goal is that these plans create a schedule for chapters to receive updates and items to keep them safe and competitive. Five Year Plans were created after conversations with AOII staff, Board members, collegiate women, advisers and network teams. These plans are fluid and can be altered as other circumstances, such as life and safety issues, arise or as the needs of the chapter changes.
This year, AOII Properties has decided to move away from Priority Lists, and instead incorporate them into Five Year Plans, while also addressing needs throughout the year. We want to ensure our chapters aren’t waiting until the end of the year to request necessary items. Instead of asking for these lists once a year, we will communicate monthly with our chapters to discuss any needs and wants. By opening up this line of communication, we hope to establish stronger relationships with our chapters and members.
