DanceSport Victoria's Strategic Plan

2015 - 2018

As part of DanceSport Victoria's involvement and commitment to the Victorian Government (via Sport and Recreation Victoria) our strategic plan has to be updated and submitted.

We have just finished our three year funding agreement with the Victorian Government and are now moving into the 2015 - 2018 applications. Part of this process is to review, revise and implement a strategic plan.

A strategic plan is a document used to communicate the organisation's goals, the actions needed to achieve those goals and all of the other critical elements developed during the planning exercise.
