We've begun building 'Vision 2022' - our next strategic plan to carry us forward during the next five years. Attend a town hall meeting June 20-22 to share your perspective.

Meeting Dates, Times, and Homework

Please join us June 20, 21, or 22 to weigh in on the future direction of our organization. Your voice matters, and is critical to the success of this plan.

Sign up for a Town Hall Meeting:

  • June 20: South Sound/Tacoma - RSVP
  • June 21: North Sound/Everett - RSVP
  • June 22: Central Sound/Seattle - RSVP

We will plan to have food and beverages at each meeting, which begin at 6:30pm and will start with a few minutes of social time. Please RSVP today to help us plan ahead for attendance. 

To help drive the conversation around strategic clarity, I'd like to encourage you to complete a short pre-read about the framework we're using for the process. We will likely discuss this piece of "homework" at our town hall meetings, and plan to unveil our 80% Intended Impact & Theory of Change draft in an upcoming blog.

After the Town Hall meetings, we  will create a constituents survey to provide opportunities for everyone in our community to offer input. Planning will be an iterative process, and I hope you get involved.

Additional Context

For 111 years, The Mountaineers has been a passionate group of bold explorers welcoming people into a community that shares deep connections to the outdoors. Adventure is at the core of who we are as Mountaineers, but for us, it’s adventure with a purpose. Vision 2022 will outline the best ways we can continue to carry forward our legacy of volunteer-led outdoor education and conservation advocacy.

The goal of Vision 2022 is to define and maximize our areas of greatest impact. Simply put, by disproportionately investing and focusing on a set of top priorities, we'll have the greatest impact in the coming years. 

The plan needs to be bold, pragmatic, and inspiring. It should be aspirational while also outlining achievable actions and resources to implement it effectively.  It will be evolutionary, building on the progress of Vision 2017. We will work together to decide on a specific set of priorities - "bets" - to make disproportionate investments to have disproportionate impact. We will use our Core Values, outlined at our November 2016 Board Retreat, as guiding principles for the plan.

To stay up to date on Vision 2022, follow along on our Vision 2022 blog, follow us on Facebook, and be sure to read your emails from The Mountaineers. We will post opportunities to get involved and provide feedback on the blog, then we'll share those opportunities through social media and email.
