CBT ask for public input in setting priorities
Columbia Basin Trust (CBT) sets its overall strategic priorities every three to four years. The priorities provide overarching direction for CBT in terms of delivering benefits, pursuing investment activities and managing corporate operations in the Columbia Basin region. The current strategic priorities expire this year.
“Setting clear priorities helps Columbia Basin Trust decide how to best use our resources and helps to ensure residents understand how those resources are used to fulfill our mandate,” says Neil Muth, CBT president and CEO.
“Being responsive to community and regional needs is how CBT approaches its work in the Basin.”
In developing the draft priorities for 2011-2015, CBT considered what it had accomplished in relation to its 2007-2010 priorities and what themes and issues were emerging from Basin communities, or were likely to emerge. A draft set of strategic priorities for 2011-2015 has been prepared based on that information.
From now until Sept. 30, CBT will be seeking feedback from residents on the draft priorities.
In the coming weeks, CBT will be meeting with a range of community groups and local governments to discuss the draft strategic priorities. If your group is interested in meeting, contact Rina Gresiuk at 1-808-505-8998. Progress CBT has made in relation to its 2007-2010 priorities can be found in the Annual Report, which will be available in July.

CBT hopes to be able to share the final strategic priorities with Basin residents at the 2010 Columbia Basin Symposium, being held in Revelstoke on Oct. 22 to 24.
The strategic priorities for 2011-2015 form part of the Columbia Basin Management Plan (CBMP). The CBMP also includes CBT’s Charter, which outlines CBT’s vision, mission and core values. View the charter online at www.cbt.org/charter or request a copy from CBT.
