The UMFC Board accepted the strategic pillars that were drafted by managers and the Board at their June Board meeting. These will now be publicly displayed at each of our offices and used by each service in their annual planning. It was a very positive process with a great deal of consensus about what our priorities should be.

I will report against the strategic pillars in future meetings in order that the Board can measure progress. There will be significant changes happening in our sector over the next three years (the span of our plan) and it is vital that we track our performance during this time.

What I like about our process is the direct linkage between our overall goals and services activities. This helps guide a collective sense of purpose and direction as well as encouraging ownership in our successes.

UMFC acknowledges the First Peoples of Australia as the traditional custodians of the land on which we work. We acknowledge their culture is a living one, which relates to their ongoing connection to all things living and non-living on land, sea and sky. We pay our respect to their elders past and present. May our children of today lead us to a better tomorrow.


UMFC acknowledges the support of the Victorian and the Australian Governments
