1. New Board of Directors Executives Begins Strategic Orientation this weekend
GHANA BADMINTON EXECUTIVE BOARD MEMBERS CONFIRMED IN; AT HISTORIC 4TH ELECTIVE CONGRESS
Begins Board Orientation with a 2025 Master Strategic Plan in sight
At the 4th Ghana Badminton Congress held virtually on November 9, 2021, (linked here) the positions of President, Vice-President, and Treasurer, plus 8 Executive Board Members, an Athlete Commissioner and two non-executive members were confirmed for December 2021 to December 2025.
We show here the new Board members with their profile (linked here). The new Board begins a packed orientation this weekend and looking into a Mission 2026 document.
The Mission 2026 is a document that will set out Ghana Badminton’s aims and ambitions for the sport, from the grassroots to the elite, for the 5 years from 2022. This Strategic Plan document summarises the values, aims and ambitions we have set for ourselves as the National Sport Governing Body to drive Badminton forward for all levels and all ages in Ghana.
When completed with a vertical bottom-up approach, we will see the challenges and targets for the coming years. This includes defined figures and clear detail about where we will take Badminton in the future.
It outlines the work we will carry out in four key areas – Participation, Places, People and Performance – to improve and grow the sport from Hamile through Bolgatanga to Kpasa and finally through the village of Beyin, and finally to the nearest town to you.
Each of these four ‘pillars’ contains a series of targets. For example, under Participation, we will work to get Badminton offered for young people in 512 additional community venues and played in 3,212 more schools -basic, secondary, tertiary (teacher training, universities, etc) than in 2017-2020.
We will launch a new school-club link programme to provide a vital and sustainable partnership with all schools. Mission 2026 is informed by, and includes reference to, our values as an organisation and our guiding principles.
Our values are Respect; Ambition; Inclusion; Teamwork; Focus and Excellence, while our guiding principles – our promises to stakeholders – include pledges, we will listen and respond, be participant-centred and strive for continuous improvement.
The document will also include our vision to make Badminton a sport that everyone is talking about – one that is diverse and dynamic, transforms lives and connects communities.
President Yeboah Evans, CGMA and will open the session with commentary and inputs from other members.
