AEU Strategic Plan Highlights
by Staff - 2005
Our commitment is to implement the Strategic Plan crafted by the
AEU Planning Committee. This document contains highlights of the
updated AEU Strategic Plan which adjusts AEU governance and
implements recommendations of the Presidents Council to help in
setting priorities for the Ethical Culture Movement.
Governance by Staff - 2005
In order for the AEU to increase
its utility and relevance to its member Societies, it must become
more thoroughly representative of the Societies; enhance its ability
to identify and provide supporting services and communications
networks to the Societies; and develop or redefine institutional
processes to ensure efficiency, accountability, and transparency.
Communication To Members by Staff - 2005
AEU actions need to
be more transparent to its members. To make them so, more information
on the process and products of the AEU needs to be provided in an
ongoing and timely manner.
Communication From Members/Societies by Staff - 2005
Societies have many common needs that are met with local resources,
but these resources are often not shared with other member Societies.
Often similar initiatives are developed in parallel with little or no
contact with other Societies.
Global Society by Staff - 2005
The Global Society is the
virtual online Ethical Society for all Members-at-Large (MAL) who do
not currently belong to an existing Ethical Society. The Global
Society also serves as an online recruitment mechanism for growing
Ethical Society membership. The web site is the access point to the
Global Society services and materials.
Planning Committee by Staff - 2005
The AEU has a recent
history of developing plans that are never brought to fruition. A
recent example would be the New Society Initiative. Typically,
failures result not from malfeasance or ineptitude but from people
with good intentions not considering all of the project’s
ramifications, not knowing how to identify and overcome challenges
during the process, and not opening up the process to the scrutiny
and assistance of a wider audience.
