WBCA Strategic Plan
Who We Are. What We Do.
OUR VISION REFLECTS WHO WE ARE
The WBCA is the unified voice of coaches of women's basketball and leads in the growth and management of the sport. The WBCA will have a dynamic partnership with the sport's governing bodies on all levels and will be the premier source of professional development and educational programs on coaching, operations, branding and marketing that assist its member coaches in improving the quality and popularity of the game.
OUR STRATEGIC GOALS, OUR CORE SERVICES REFLECT WHAT WE DO
The five strategic goals fit within the five core services – Stewardship, Education, Advocacy, Membership and Funding – the WBCA provides its membership.
The Five Goals
Strategic Planning Process
The WBCA Strategic Plan 2014-18 was developed in Fall 2013. The Strategic Planning Committee met in the WBCA office on Sept. 12 to begin the process. Ragan Cohn, vice president of governance & communications, National Commission on Certification of Physican Assistants (NCCPA), a respected association-management professional, facilitated the discussions.
Working through a series of group exercises the committee came up with the basic concepts for the WBCA's strategic vision and goals. Then, during a series of teleconferences, the committee finalized the strategic vision and goals statements, as well as formulating the objectives the association needs to realize in order to achieve the goals.
