Management Report


The UPCC Strategic/Master Planning Volunteer group has been hard at work and has completed work on the Mission, Vision and Core Values statement and has moved on to preparing for upcoming focus groups the week of August 17th.  A call for volunteers was sent out out the week of August 10th. All areas of the operation have been discussed in smaller group sessions and the findings from these meetings have been incorporated into the focus group planning process along with strategy and tactics that will be included in the final recommended action plan. Next steps include obtaining proposals from qualified master planners to complete a master plan for the club facilities after completion of the focus group process and the recommended action plan is complete.
