Strategic Review


As you are aware I have asked the Management Committee to consider the development of a strategy review of the ACA. 

Part of this process is to allow all members to have the opportunity  to provide input into the development of the review. 

Therefore I have posted the area identified to action the review for your consideration.  I welcome you to review the areas and provided feedback concerning the priority area if you desire.  

Your feedback will be delivered to the appointed person for each of the priority areas for consideration.  If you are interested in joining the group of people involved in developing a plan for the priority area please advise on your return email and you will be considered in joining a group.
