CYC Strategic Plan 2018 - 2021
The Canberra Yacht Club Committee has ongoing responsibility to oversee its day to day operations, administration and finances, and a responsibility to lay the foundations to ensure the Club prospers for the long term benefit of members. As a core platform of this long term goal, our Strategic Plan is aimed at strengthening our great Club over the next three years. The CYC should never stand still and will always strive to enhance key assets, namely sailing activities, membership and the staff in our employment. The Plan will be updated by the Committee annually to provide a key focus for our Club’s activities - read the plan here. Commodore Sue Hart.
