Two main essential elements for the success of the plan were highlighted:

2.      Their feedback
 
This is why we called for committees’ creation and introduced the board members responsible for the coordination of each objective. The board member role is not to lead the committee but to liaise between committee and board.
 
We also diffused our social media and contact details for connecting with our members and hearing their feedback.
