Strategic Planning


The Strategic Planning committee is responsible for developing the many strategic initiatives for growth, management, and development of VIA and its membership.  This is where the Vision is created.




Member outreach!  The VIA Membership Committee works to build and retain a strong membership, assisting all members to be a part of a successful VIA team.  We always need new members to join us in this exciting committee.  This is the best place to meet new members and get involved quickly!

Goals & Objectives 

  • Establish personal relationships with new members by acting as ambassadors at the monthly luncheons, introducing new members to existing members, and by greeting attendees at VIA In Action Breakfasts and quarterly Open Houses.
  • Encourage member participation and increased business activities between members.
  • Introduce new members at the monthly VIA luncheon. Primary goal is to increase and endorse membership through all activities and attain growth in membership.
  • Extend invitations to members for events such as the Quarterly Get Acquainted Breakfast.
  • Initiate occasional member surveys, using the feedback to keep VIA relevant to member’s needs.
  • Coordinate target marketing program.
