At the Council meeting held (by Zoom) on 11th July 2020, Council reviewed the 2015-2020 WOS Strategy and approved a revised five year strategy for 2021-2026.
The review concluded that almost all the targets of the 2015- 20 strategy had been achieved and remained relevant for the coming five years, with the exception of membership growth, which had been slower than projected and hoped for. This would be addressed in the new strategy and there will be a particular emphasis on reaching out to young people and addressing issues of diversity in the membership.
The 2021-26 Strategy reflects WOS’s determination to represent all birders in Wales – both those who live in Wales and those who visit Wales from across the border and abroad. The full strategy document can be downloaded here.
