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.
