Star Island Corporation

Strategic Map to Guide Star Through 2016

Strategic Map Profile Imageby Sharon Kennedy, President

In 2014, Star Island embarks on a new three year strategic plan with community, economic, environment, and stewardship goals at its core. Our plan is the result of many individuals within our Shoaler community working together. It also demonstrates our connections with the principles of the United Church of Christ and the Unitarian Universalist Association.

Our new strategic map, and it truly is our map, lays out objectives to accomplish by the end of 2016.

The four goals share the common purpose of achieving the sustainability, and enhancing the vitality, of Star Island. Just as we are all connected as Shoalers, this map and its objectives depend on one another in order to succeed. There are several common threads throughout our strategic map, and together these threads weave a strong fabric. For example, enhancing the interconnectivity between conferences, via the Council of Conferences and other methods, can spark ideas to expand island amenities. And as Corporation membership grows, a deeply engaged Shoaler community is more likely to support our goals and growth efforts through annual, capital and planned giving.

The goals and their objectives point us to a sustainable model with full conferences, an engagedcommunity, and an eye towards innovative preservation of our traditions. You and I both know how important Star Island is, and this three year map is our guide to a stronger future. While we will keep you apprised of our progress in the interim, I look forward to celebrating with you in 2016 the successes we will have achieved together.
