The REAL Board of Directors is guided by a Business Plan that lays out the values that drive us as an organization, the issues we face, our vision, the key areas and projects that we plan to focus on, the results we want to achieve.
The Business Plan grew out of a Strategic Planning exercise and the community consultation we held in September 2002, called “Stopping the Slide”.
