Strategic Planning – Start 2019

Norman Lane
Strategic Planning Committee


The purpose of this Committee is to determine where we are, where we are going and how do we get there for the General Grand Council of Cryptic Masons International.

Strategic Planning consists of a systematic process that the organization agrees on; builds key leadership team members commitment, and focuses upon the priorities of the organization in order to move it forward.

This is not a one year process, that we plan and do something and then finish.  This planning and execution is an on-going process year after year, building on previous accomplishments and moving in a coordinated and agreed-upon direction with specific priorities.

  • Prioritize the most important issues
  • Be open to all possibilities
  • Prepare a written planning document
  • Make the plan into an annual operational plan

To get started we need to have the end in mind.  What do we need to be doing for the upcoming year to accomplish our mission?

    1. Increase the number of readers to the Weekly Decryption
