APF Strategic Plan 2011-2013

Overview of Planning Process

The APF Board held a planning workshop in February 2011 in Washington DC to develop a new strategic plan for the Association.

Prior to the workshop, members were asked to contribute their views and opinions in two surveys and via the listserv, which saw much robust discussion about the future of the Association.  A member-based strategic planning group was set up to provide a way to coordinate the input into the writing of the plan.

Following the Board workshop, the strategic planning group took the workshop output, and worked to draft a strategic plan which was then set out to members for feedback.

The draft was updated, and after another round of comments from members, was finalised.

The Board will manage the implementation of the plan.
