ACSA Bylaws and Board-approved Policies & Procedures call for every Region to formulate a plan outlining the group’s purpose, goals, events/activities, and evaluation methods at beginning of the year for Board consideration. With the adoption of ACSA’s new Strategic Plan, Region leaders are asked to assure that their group’s work aligns with goals articulated in the plan to maximize our collective efforts.
