NRPA Strategic Plan
The strategic planning process is driven by the full Board of Directors in collaboration with NRPA staff and establishes the strategic priorities designed to provide a clear and unified focus and direction for the work of the entire association. The strategic plan serves as the foundation for integrating annual budgeting, resource allocation and staff performance planning/management processes for the association, but is also a unifying guide for the field to demonstrate the impact agencies can have on their communities.
