2020 Strategy Review

Towards the end of 2019 the Berne Union commenced a review of its 5-year strategy. As part of this process, we have conducted a significant amount of research into the role and practice of the association through consultation with industry stakeholders, benchmarking against other industry associations, and inviting guidance from members.

At the bottom of this page you will find a collection of all documentation relating to the review process: outline of status quo, research documents, discussion minutes and draft proposals. The current status of the project is that high-level strategy has been reaffirmed, based around 3 strategic pillars: 

  1. Facilitation of networking
  2. Enabling exchange of information
  3. Increasing visibility and influenc

The Secretariat are currently working on a draft action plan for the execution of proposals to improve knowledge exchange and networking effectiveness; a comprehensive communications policy; and a draft proposal for adjustment to the committee structures. These will be submitted to the Management Committee in May, with follow-up after the Spring Meeting.
