Professional chapters are encouraged to develop strategic plans for both the long term and short term. The purpose of the plan is to communicate the chapter's objectives so that others can contribute to the achievement of those objectives. This is also a great way to share knowledge and best practices.
A high quality strategic plan should contain:
The minimum requirements for a basic strategic plan are:
Plans are to be submitted annually to your region vice president by Jan. 31. These plans should be submitted by the chapter president, president-elect, or jointly and should be sent electronically.
The RVP will provide feedback to the chapter, based on the plan submitted, noting the date the plan was received (this date will be needed when completing the CAR in February). Strategic plans are also scored by the RVPs, based on the method listed below:
A high quality submission will have strategic objectives and action plans, as well as tactical objectives and action plans. "Extra" points may be earned for these, with the total being a maximum of 5 points.
University chapter operations plans are due Oct. 31. The plan should define your chapter goals and the strategy to reach those goals.
