IWFSA strategy - Our strategic priorities
As part of the rebirth, we are reclaiming our position as “The Voice of Women Leaders who bring change” and have drafted six Strategic Priorities to be implemented during the next three years.
The pillars are;
- Member Affairs
- Leadership Development
- Strategic Alliances
- Funding and Sustainability
- Advocacy/Voice and
- Brand and Reputation Management.
These priorities are implemented through the board subcommittees led by various board members.
Over and above the six sub-committees, the Board resolved to have an additional sub-committee of Audit and Risk, in order to ensure good governance.
- Attract and retain the membership of best of breed, like minded, accomplished women.
- Foster meaningful engagement and connectivity between members
- Create seamless, consistent and reliable experiences for our members
The mandate of the Member Affairs Committee, Chaired by Eileen Wilton, is to recruit and increase the membership of IWFSA with the right calibre of women leaders in accordance to the guidelines set out by IWF.
The committee’s other goal is to focus on member retention, and provide oversight of member eligibility processes, membership outreach, and advice to the Board on member contribution and benefits. The other key deliverable for the committee is to ensure that successfully recruited members are inducted and ushered into the IWFSA in collaboration with the Communication Sub-committee.
The committee fully embraces a diversified membership base and is pro-actively looking at attracting women leaders coming from various economic segments of the South African Economy. To remain relevant to our existing members, we organise monthly Dine Arounds. These are hosted by Board members for both members and non-members. The member affairs committee remains committed to identifying and inviting other pre-eminent women into the IWFSA fold.
Eileen Wilton is supported by Deputy Chair: Charmla Chetty.
