Strategic planning is more than ensuring your association will remain financially sound and be able to maintain its reserves—it's projecting where your association expects to be in five, ten, or fifteen years-and how your association will get there. It is a systematic planning process involving a number of steps that identify the current status of the association, including its mission, vision for the future, operating values, needs, goals, prioritized actions and strategies, action plans, and monitoring plans. This Best Practices Report, published by the Foundation for Community Association Research, includes performance benchmarks on how to establish a strategic plan as well as case studies that illustrate the implementation of those benchmarks in real communities.

Strategic Planning is also available as a free PDF download. However, for those who want a printed version, it is available here at cost.
