Each year, board picks 4 more strategic action plans of the 43 in the report to focus on.
The 2017 action plan choices that the board will focus on throughout the year included: 1)” investigate investment/savings vehicles for excess cash”; 2) “improve training and provide event information for a better participant experience”; and 3) “Each race should have an established minimum schedule of posts to both social media and blog, which will be used to improve SEO and provide information to runners and walkers in the community”; and 4) host the 2020 RRCA conference.
A lengthy discussion regarding # 3 followed the selection of the action plans. At the end of the # 3 discussion, the board passed the following motion: To best support ORRC’s race directors, each race director will attend the board meeting, presenting their race plan status report at the 10, 6 and 2 month intervals from race day, as well as utilize the expertise of the board and others in preparing for their race event.
