Goal Development and Implementation:

In August of 2023, the Executive Board of the Nevada Chapter adopted its four year strategic plan. This plan will guide the Chapter’s activities over the next four years. The chapter’s new plan is focused on five key areas: Members Services & Networking, Increasing Membership, Professional Development, Planning Advocacy, and Organization Impact. After adoption, the Strategic Plan shall be reviewed annually by the Executive Board at its first meeting of the year and updated no less than every four years. The Chapter looks forward to working with our members to implement this new strategic plan.
