The action plan is set up in easy to read and easy to follow steps which should be followed in order to create the best effectiveness. To improve the action plan I should include deadlines so the action plan has a time limit to get steps completed instead of brief times spans such as; preseason. In the action plan I should have also specified more on how the club could be promoted to both non member and members through communication such as emails and web updates I should have also gone into depth on the effectiveness of the clubs website As with the first action plan I have included a step at the end which asks to repeat the whole action plan again at the beginning of the next season becomes this will constantly keep the club in the limelight. ...read more.
