Strategic Plan

AASP nearing the end of its' current Strategic Plan (2011-2015). This plan provided specific direction and measurable goals that have allowed AASP to grow and develop in a number of areas (Membership, Educational Programming, Communications, Certification, Organizational Structure). With the continued evolution of the association and field of sport psychology, it is important to re-calibrate our goals and objectives for the next 3-5 years. As a result, AASP has started the process of creating a new Strategic Plan to be launched in January 2016.

The new Strategic Plan will be formed from member input – through in-person and Virtual Town Halls and important Member Surveys. As a result, we expect the new plan to be data-driven.

AASP will be circulating a detailed Member Survey in early June 2015. The purpose of this survey is to capture member feedback to use when constructing the new Strategic Plan.  It is pivotal that we include our member's input to adequately reach important goals and objectives for the next 3-5 years.   We look forward to member participation in helping us to develop our new Strategic Plan.
