One of the primary tasks of the new Provincial Council last year was to conduct a SWOT analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats). From this exercise we developed our Strategic Plan, with our Vision, Mission, and Purpose statements. This gave us a clear picture of where we wanted to go, the next step was to figure out what we needed to do to get there.
From a strategic perspective, there were a number of things we needed to change in order to improve our structure and governance. The result is a complete review of the Party's Bylaws which need to be approved by the membership at the AGM. Unless you are intimately familiar with the current bylaws, the changes proposed in the 2015 bylaws may not be apparent.
