The initial Strategic Planning Team for Grand York Rite consisted of the following members: Alan B. Power (Moderator), Thomas Hultin, Ted P. Bendure, Mark A. Marsh, Craig Phillips, Kevin McCanns, A. Paul Pabon.

The idea was to conduct Strategic Planning for the Grand York Rite of Nevada by:
1. Familiarizing ourselves with the Strategic Planning method,
2. Determining our Values, Mission, and Vision,
3. Discussing and organizing our Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats,
4. Creating a List of Problems to be attacked (from our SWOT discussions),
5. Outlining an effective format to address those problems (Problem Methodology), and document the resolution of problems addressed in the "Work" section.

The Plan from here:

The team's work is basically complete. The team has identified what needs to be done. It is now up to the Leaders of Grand York Rite to select problems and to effect solutions. The plan is to have each newly elected Grand Leader review the List of Problems and address 3 to 7 of those problems during his year as our Grand Leader. He would choose the team or committee to address the problem and instruct them to use the Problem Methodology format to address the problem and then report back the results at the Tonopah meeting or at the next Grand Sessions Meeting. The results could simply be a "Plan of Action" and how it is to be implemented or it could consist of more - including a possible Resolution to the Constitution.

The committee appointed would consist of a Leader\Moderator and 3 to 5 other members. The members should consist of a diverse group of individuals somewhat knowledgeable in the area of the topic selected. They should not all agree on a solution or you will get a biased response. The members should be chosen based on the idea that they "don't agree" so that all possible options will be considered.

Next, instruct each member that no opinions are to be presented to the others. If someone starts expressing or presenting their opinion, they should be told to stop - as no one is interested in opinions. Only facts, based on quantifiable research, are to be presented to the group. In the end, that is what the group's consensus and recommendation for an action plan should be based on. (Remember - just the facts.)

Take your opinions elsewhere because they are not needed or wanted. No preconceptions should ever be discussed by the group unless it is to lay a foundation that preconceptions exist. The specific preconception, however, need not be discussed as it will result in "tainting" the results i.e. keep your opinions to yourself.

The Moderator\Leader will discuss the problem with the group and assign research tasks to members of the group to bring back to the group and report. Then, they will follow the Problem Methodology form to completion so that the action plan recommended is based on research and facts only.

If your elected Grand Leader does not address these problems (mentioned in 4 above and shown in 4 below) each year, and clearly state which problems he is addressing, you have the right, duty, and obligation to ask why he is not. Please be forthright and direct in asking and insisting that the problems that we all are facing be addressed and resolved by our Grand Leaders. Holding your Leaders accountable is up to you. If you do not do it, no one will.
