Being indispensable to achieving success for its members is the driving force behind everything that ASA does. ASA has adopted strategic planning as an operational philosophy, with ongoing re-evaluation of the critical knowledge bases that form the framework of our world, including being sensitive to member needs; insight into the future environment of the industry; understanding the capacity and strategic position of the organization, and effective analysis of the ethical implications of policy and program choices that the association makes. ASA’s strategic long-range plan represents a compass that has guided the organization’s work, increased the relevancy of its programs and laid the roadmap for the association’s future.
How does ASA get there? With outstanding volunteer leadership, working behind the scenes to plan, evaluate, strategize and implement. The high level of relevancy achieved by ASA’s programs and services over the past three years has been a direct result of the association’s leadership following this strategic path. AtNetworkASA 2010: THRIVE, ASA boards and committees met and continued the drive toward providing programming indispensable to achieving success in the PHCP and PVF industry.
