2014 - 2024 Strategic Plan
With our stakeholders we have identified a suite of strategies falling into three core work areas:
  • Core businesses - building partnerships, collections, exhibits and programs which will anticipate and meet the needs of current and future audiences, primarily in Lethbridge and southwestern Alberta, but also capitalizing on Lethbridge's rich tourist potential;
  • Sustaining - giving direction to and setting a high standard for the institution's sustainability, by developing and operating value-added businesses, and building robust fund development and donated income capability;
  • Communicating and Marketing - developing the Galt's long term brandand building awareness of the institution in its communities by engaging stakeholders and using skilled communications and marketing.

The Strategic Plan will remain flexible and responsive while guiding the dedicated board, staff and volunteers into 2024.
