In 2017 CATT Board of Directors and staff met to complete a 3-year strategic plan. During this retreat, there was collective agreement on what success for CATT would look like 3 years later in 2020. As I re-visit these goals and we start a new fiscal year, I am pleased to see that CATT has achieved 60% of what their vision was for 2020. This demonstrates good progress, but we still have a few important unfinished items and we need to update our goals and set the vision for what success will look like in 2023.
In the meantime, staff is busy getting ready for our February 3rd Annual Meeting where committee chairs will report on previous year achievements, finalizing the CATT events schedule, and focusing on membership renewals. We are thrilled to report membership renewals are significantly above last year at this time. In my mind, this is indication that “our members have a sense of pride” which was one of our benchmarks for 2020 success.
As I write this column, I am looking forward to traveling to the Builders Association of Northern Nevada (BANN) Economic Forecast on January 30. Co-sponsored by the Reno/Sparks Association of Realtors, this forecast covers the residential market, land, commercial retail, industrial, multifamily, and a report from national economist Elliot Eisenberg. This is always great insight for the year ahead.
My best, Kellie
