Strategic Plan

In the fall and winter of 2021-2022, APA California leadership embarked on a comprehensive strategic planning process to guide the organization’s priorities for the next four years. Key questions and priorities addressed through this process included amplifying our influence and more effectively reaching and serving a broader base of planners and communities throughout the state.

In response to these strategic questions, APA California developed our first organizational vision statement, and updated our mission and core values statements as the foundations for a new strategic framework to guide the organization’s choices and work for the coming four years. Please read the Executive Summary or our full 2022-2025 Strategic Plan for more detail. If you have questions about this plan or want to be part of our work, please contact us at [email protected]
