In January of 2020 the board and interested supporters of the Society participated in a workshop to develop a strategic plan for the organization. The plan sets out the strategic priorities for the next three to four years, along with specific goals and objectives (View or download the plan below).
It also defined the mission, vision and values of the organization as follows:
To restore, maintain and enhance Yorkton’s historic brick flour mill and site.
To have within our community a historic landmark as a monument to the
pioneers of York Colony and early homesteaders.
Openness: We welcome into our membership all who wish to assist in the mission of the society.
Historical integrity: We are committed to accurately representing our local history in all our activities, including recognition of the importance of agriculture to our community.
Organizational integrity: Our deliberations and decisions shall be conducted with respect for our bylaws, our purpose and our plans, and shall be accessible for examination by our members, our supporters and community stakeholders.
Financial integrity: Our financial activities shall be honest, shall meet audit requirements and shall be publicly disclosed.
The following were determined to be the priorities of the Society over the term of the plan. These will be revisited in 2024, or when the goals and objectives have been largely met.
The plan includes specific goals for each priority, and sets out a number of objectives to achieve those goals.
Board members and volunteers attend a strategic planning workshop in January 2020.
