The current business plan is approximately 26 pages. There is a strong structure in place, but there are likely areas that could use improvement and/or changes. If business is your forte, we’d love to have you lend your expertise to this committee. Additionally, this committee will review the current budget and make sure it is realistic and sustainable.
This committee includes event planning for fundraisers, as well as other opportunities that may come along in the community.
