It is essential that your club have a good planning process. This should start each year with your committee having a Strategic Planning meeting. Out of this meeting will fall your plan for the year. This can then be broken down into sub-plans if required. A funding and/or financial plan is a necessary part of this. There is no right or wrong strategic plan. It is simply a plan for what you would like to achieve in your club.
For more detail on planning including business plans, financial plans etc go to the Sport NZ website. There is some very useful information here.
