The Connecticut Chapter of ASLA adopted a Strategic Plan in February 2019, the culmination of a lengthy planning process involving more than a dozen committee members — guided by a facilitator from ASLA — who conducted research, engaged in dialogue, and drafted foundational language for the plan. The finalized document was then shaped and approved by the Executive Committee.

The Strategic Plan establishes four broad goals, whose objectives are supported by several strategies and action items. The Strategic Plan will give our Chapter a framework for the coming years, and guide the application of our resources — human, physical, financial — to best achieve our goals in service of our members, the profession, and the public.
