Vision, mission and values

The NASPO Board of Directors undertook a strategic planning initiative to guide the organization and help inform the leadership’s decision making. The adopted strategic plan includes five-year objectives and measurements. Since then, leaders, committees and NASPO staff have implemented the objectives and advanced the strategic priorities. An annual report to the members is produced each year to ensure member engagement in the fulfillment of the strategic plan.
