Strategic Planning

Stategic planning is crucial for clubs and class associations for sustainability. Strategic Plans can be as simple or as complex as your club needs and can help ongoing committees continue the vision for the future. The resources include how to help set your goals and how to create a implementation plan as well as examples from different clubs.  

If you would like assistance starting this process or updating your current plan, send an email to your local AS team below.
