In order to successfully develop the Strategic Plan, we will first draw from the findings and recommendations generated from the BC Wine Industry Scoping Project in spring 2018. We will then work with the BCWI Board, Staff & Planning Committee in four stages over six months:
Board retreat session to achieve a clearly articulated strategy
Gathering and analyzing input
Draft presentation/mid-term webinar for industry input
Final version March 2019
After finalizing the plan, regular review and adjustments will be conducted as needed during execution.
The goal is to create an atmosphere of transparency by working hand in hand with the industry throughout the planning process with fluid communications via town hall meetings, webinars, and general q&a. Please check back for updates once these events are scheduled.
Funding for this project has been provided by the Governments of Canada and British Columbia through the Canadian Agricultural Partnership, a federal-provincial-territorial initiative.
