Membership Survey

April 23rd, 2018

With the completion of the Frank Garner Boat House project, it is now time to turn our thoughts to the future! We will be developing a new Strategic Plan that will guide us for the next three to five years.

To do this, Cheema must fully understand the environment in which we operate and how to strengthen the organization to meet current and future challenges.

We have engaged the services of Brenda Fair (Previous Cheema Commodore) of Fairwinds Training and Development to assist us in this strategic planning process. We would be very interested to hear your thoughts on the current and future direction for the club.

Please click on the link which will take you to a brief online survey which kicks off the consultative process.  All responses will be anonymous. The survey will only be live until May 7th, 2018.

The feedback gathered here will be very valuable for us as we move forward, and we very much appreciate your time and consideration.

Sincerely,

Andrew Koch

Commodore
