Following discussion with Delegates during 2019, the Executive Committee developed a fist iteration Business Plan that set out the goals for the Association, and specific targets for 2020-2023.
During 2023 the County commissioned a set of county-wide member and club surveys, alongside regular engagement with its county delegates and successfully signed up to the Women's in Golf (WIG) Charter in March 2023. External factors were also considered, such as the continuing decline of Women's & Girls participation in club golf, the emergence of the independent golfer, and recent decisions about the future of Women's Major County Competitions by England Golf. In the light of these SWOTs (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats) posing a set of new strategic challenges, the Executive decided to amalgamate the strategic objectives of the long-term business plan with the Women in Golf Charter Commitments. During the winter of 2024/25 the Executive updated the business plan & the WIG Charter commitments into a combined document, outlining both long-term and short-term objectives for the 2024-2026 period.

There are 17 Priorities for Action set by the Executive Committee for 2024. These are set out in Section 6 of the Business Plan. Progress on these targets will be reported to the delegates meetings in June and September and to the memberhsip as a whole at the AGM.
