Strategic Plan Advisory Committee

The Strategic Plan Advisory Committee  will assist the executive in the crafting of our goals and strategic direction, based on the results of wide consultation. The SPAC will also assist in additional rounds of consultation and ensuring that feedback received is appropriately integrated.
