Posted by: Scott Sammons
An ambitious strategic plan for 2017-18 has been agreed by the IRMS Executive Team.
The team recently gathered in Birmingham for two days to assess the delivery of the work programme for the previous 12 months and set the priorities for the coming year.
We have a comprehensive set of tasks and targets for the year, and our overall aims are to reduce our operating costs, secure new and stable sources of funding, and of course ensure that we continue to offer relevant and useful benefits to our members.
The programme is now broken up into 5 work streams -
Operational: ensuring we continue the roll-out of accreditation, expansion of the
training portfolio and involvement in current industry projects and initiatives.
Commercial: will look at any due reviews of our partnerships, determining what commercial offering we can provide to our partners and ensuring the Society is technically geared up to offer products and services to members and partners.
Membership: will look at ensuring that our membership offering and structure is as up-to-date and relevant in the 21st century as it can be; this includes utilising functionality now available on the website to enhance the membership experience and also ensuring that management of your membership is easy and efficient.
Communications: will look at promotion of the Society and focused membership campaigns to attract new members and those whose membership has lapsed; this will also look at how we can develop our online presence to raise awareness of the Society and any key issues that affect our members and the profession throughout the year.
Content: will look at our strategy and position for creating and sharing content for our members and the public to use; resources for our members will always take priority, however the success of the Toolkit for Schools and the Podcasts shows there is wider demand within the profession which the Society may be able to satisfy.
Your Society continues to improve and modernise. We welcome anyone who wants to support us in achieving these aims - so if you have any time to spare, please get in touch.
