Within the EC, we've always had a pretty good idea of what we're doing and where we're going, but know that we don't often communicate it as well as we might. There are also loads of new ideas and challenges coming in all the time, and changes to the world outside naturism that we need to take account of.
Therefore, over the two awaydays (the first was in September 09, and the second in February this year), we took the opportunity - without an agenda or the need for minutes etc. - to discuss only the future by gathering all the ideas and feedback we've had, looking at the parts of the organisation and its activities that need attention, blending in our own ideas, experience and expertise, assessing the changes and challenges we face, and have come up with the 3YP that articulates our aims, shows clearly what we need to be doing and how we intend to achieve results - for everyone. It will take work and we hope that many of you will be inspired to come and help.
It's a very exciting step and we're looking forward to it. Here's to the future!
