KEY RESULT AREAS NTEC ANNUAL REPORT 2006-07 PAGE 26 OF 48 5. KEY RESULT AREA 4 CORPORATE GOVERNANCE 5.1 CORPORATE IMAGE The Commission commenced work on its own corporate branding, including a logo. The branding should be finalised early in the 2007-08 reporting period for use at the municipal elections to be held in March 2008. 5.2 STRATEGIC PLANNING A consultant facilitated a strategic planning and team building workshop for the Commission over two days. The outcomes from the workshop formed the basis of the development of the Commissions strategic plan which will focus on four key areas: Enrolment; Education and information; Elections; and Corporate governance. Further staff meetings will be held in 2007-08 to complete the plan. 5.3 ALICE SPRINGS OFFICE Since early 2005, the NTEC has employed a full time officer in Alice Springs to better manage public awareness, community and local government elections in the southern region and provide a shop front service to the public and stakeholders. The permanent staffing of the office has resulted in operational efficiencies for the NTEC but there have been difficulties in attracting and retaining an experienced officer. As a single person office, it requires temporary closures during out-of-office activities and it was not possible to provide the full range of electoral services on an ongoing basis. A summary of services provided in 2006-07 include: Enrolment and roll review undertaken in communities with elections; Enrolment stimulation and electoral information stalls held at the Alice Springs civic venues; Educational presentations undertaken at schools and other settings; Over the counter electoral services to the public including enrolment, information and access to the public roll as well as voting services to interstate electors; Six community government general elections and one by-election; Five community association elections; The Stuart by-election; One fee for service election (Warte Alparayetye Aboriginal Corporation); and Absent and postal voting facilities for three interstate general elections.
