AACTE Strategic Planning Moves Forward

Greetings, colleagues. In our first blog on the strategic planning process, we noted that a Task Force would be meeting to draft revisions to the organization’s vision and mission and to outline strategic priorities for 2019 to 2022. That meeting just concluded and we are pleased to report that the Task Force is on track to deliver a draft to the full membership for review next month.

Over two days, the Task Force, which is composed of terrific members of the AACTE Board of Directors and National Office staff, wrestled with the challenges and opportunities confronting AACTE and its members and reached consensus on a set of strategic priorities that can guide the association’s work during the next 3 years. These priorities, with their associated objectives and progress metrics, will guide the staff as they experiment with new member programs and services and will help the board to track the association’s progress.

The next step in the process is to improve on the work we have done by gathering input from AACTE members. Immediately following the Task Force meeting, we reported on the draft plan to the AACTE Board of Directors and gathered their insights and feedback. The Task Force will make revisions based on that input and, in a few weeks, will have a draft to share with all of you for your reactions and comments. Expect more details about how you can register your reactions to the draft in our next blog.

In the meantime, we want to hear from you! Please take a moment to complete a quick three-question member flash poll (login required). Your responses will be factored into the draft that we put before the entire membership in November. The poll will be available through the extended due date: October 19.

We want to express our thanks to the hard-working members of the Task Force, and to you for your engagement in this process. Working together, we can ensure a bright future for our association.
