In 2015, the AANP engaged its members and stakeholders to develop its Strategic Plan 2025, which is designed to guide the association to achieve long-term Goals. The five Goals are illustrated below, and Supporting Strategies were developed to help progress toward these Goals. A growing financial capacity, engaged staff and membership, and culture of collaboration are all critical to the success of the Strategic Plan.

An expanded version of the AANP Strategic Plan 2025 is available to AANP members. Curious about how we are working toward these Goals in 2016? View the webinar recording presented to members in January 2016 available via members only portal.
