LEADING VISION GOAL 2021

NAESP nurtures and supports all principals to demonstrate the vision, courage, and expertise to lead and advocate for effective learning communities in which all children reach their highest potential.

LEARNING VISION GOAL 2021

NAESP develops and supports all principals by providing on-demand learning opportunities that ensure access to the knowledge, skills, networks, and tools necessary to equip students for the 21st century.

COMMUNITIES VISION GOAL 2021

NAESP develops and sustains local, state, national, and global networks that create powerful relationships for effective leadership and learning.

ORGANIZATIONAL VISION GOAL 2021

NAESP develops dynamic leaders, efficient systems, and creative resources that build capacity for long-term sustainability and for adaptability to the “new normal” for nonprofit, membership-based organizations in a rapidly changing world.

The Board reviewed key findings from member surveys and key stakeholder interviews, reflected on the substantial preparation materials that were provided prior to the meeting, assessed the financial and human resources of NAESP, and considered several scenarios or pathways leading from status quo to growth for NAESP. The Board reached preliminary consensus on 12 Intermediate Goals and initial strategies that were refined and developed into a new Strategic Growth Plan for NAESP. The Board reviewed a preliminary version of the Strategic Growth Plan during their July 2014 Board meeting and approved a summary of the plan that was then shared at Zone Meetings during the NAESP Annual Conference on July 11, 2014.   Zone Meeting attendees were invited to review the summary and provide input/feedback to their respective Zone Directors within the next several weeks.  It was further decided that all State Leaders would be notified via email and invited to review the Strategic Growth Plan Summary and provide input/feedback to your respective Zone Director no later than August 23, 2014.  Or, if you prefer, you may offer your feedback/input here.
