Mongolian Scouts review national strategic plan
Strategic Planning sets the direction of an organization making it as one of the most crucial processes that a Scout association must exercise thoroughly.
From 4th to 8th October 2008, a total of 31 participants and staff of the Scout Association of Mongolia (SAM), headed by its Chief Commissioner Mr Erdenebileg Erdenejamiyan, started reviewing its national strategic plan focusing on six strategic priority areas: membership growth, adult resources, youth involvement, PR and communication, management and financial resources. The planning is taking place at the Nairamdal Centre in Ulanbaataaar, Mongolia.
Coordinating and facilitating the event were Regional Director Abdullah Rasheed, Director for Administration and External Resources S Prassanna Shrivastava, assisted by Leonisa Capinlac.
In 1994, SAM became a full member of WOSM and today it has over 8,000 Scouts covering 18 out of the 21 provinces across the country.
Over the years, SAM had been actively organizing and participating in different Scouting activities, strengthening its training teams, and establishing Rover Council. The most recent Scout event was Mongolia Venture Moot in August 2008.
Known for having good bilateral relations with other international and national organizations, SAM has built partnerships with Japan, Korea, Denmark, Germany and some international and national organizations such as ADB, UNICEF, UNFPA, and GTZ.
