Staff and Board Members Held a Strategic Planning Meeting this Spring to Make Plans for the Future of Young Forest Habitat and Wildlife.
The Ruffed Grouse Society and American Woodcock Society staff and board members held a strategic planning meeting near headquarters in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania this Spring to discuss future plans to advance the mission of preserving our sporting traditions by creating healthy forest habitat for grouse, woodcock and other wildlife. The organizations are being proactive in preparing for the future of habitat and hunting.
The task was to envision RGS and AWS in the future by describing the accomplishments or significant works in progress to achieve 10 years from now. Critical issues were discussed and planned including resistance to scientifically sound habitat management practices, declining hunter participation of the public and revenue generation. Analysis included discussing metrics that gauge success in overcoming these issues. The meeting was held with an overarching focus of what members and the organization expect from each other now and in the future.
RGS and AWS are taking action on the results of this strategic planning meeting and have already begun steps to achieve objects in the short-term. We are able to rise to future challenges because we have committed members, passionate volunteers and a talented and dedicated staff.
