1. Envision the Aims of the Organisation

It is very important to define the basic aims of the organisation, the long-term goals or purpose of the organisation and to set some short-term objectives for how you plan to accomplish these. The initial goals may evolve over time as the group grows and gains experience, but members will find it easier to support a group if there are clearly identifiable reasons for its existence.

The process used is as important as the aims themselves. Members are more likely to remain active if they have a say in helping to shape the organisation and plan for its future.
