Strategic Plan

Bob ByerMessage from 2012 APS President Robert Byer

Over the past year the Executive Board, Operating Officers and APS staff have engaged in a strategic planning process aimed at setting forth goals and objectives for the Society during the 2013-2017 timeframe. Implementation of the plan, informed by member input and the work of a number of Task Forces, will take place over the next five years.

The APS Strategic Plan (2013-2017) can be viewed below. I encourage you to read it and leave comments. A summary of current programs and activities of APS can be found in the 2011 Annual Report.
