This past Tuesday, October 27th, Opportunities’ senior management team and Board of Directors joined together at the Inn at Essex for a strategic planning session. Management presented their research, experience, and findings regarding the current climate of the Credit Union in regards to its five-year plan.
Presentations on competitors, products, strengths and weaknesses, financial performance, and human resources were delivered by Opportunities staff prior to an executive session.
The day was not all presentations and numbers, however! Board members and staff were able to mingle during a cupcake decorating session in which they competed to create cupcakes representing each season of the year. As you can see by the photos below, competition was fierce.
Development of the five-year strategic plan will unfold over the following weeks. Both the Opportunities Board members and senior managers are excited for the planning phase to continue.
