5 Year Plan 2016-2021

5 Year Strategic Plan: 2016 – 2021

The HAI’s Strategic Plan was born out of a recognition that we are in a new phase that is characterised by a growing awareness of humanism in Irish society, a dramatic increase in demand for our ceremonies and in membership numbers, together with a new generation of enthusiastic HAI volunteers dedicated to advancing humanism in Ireland.

The intention is to grow and develop the humanist community in Ireland. This will be achieved by increasing our services in celebrancy and pastoral care; educating people about humanism; and promoting awareness of humanist issues through our work and campaigns. Good governance and organisational structures will be put in place to help achieve these goals.

The strategic plan will serve as a framework to support and enhance our growth between 2016 and 2021.
