Abstract: Professional associations have recognized the value of long-term planning to assess the past and present, look into the future, and set specific goals to provide direction. Associations are affected by the myriad of events from their own community to global society, and it is easy to be pulled in many different directions. Associations have a compelling need to elicit member and environmental needs, set goals and objectives, and take strategic steps to realize these goals and objectives. It is the purpose of this article to provide, for the members of the American Counseling Association (ACA) and our archives, a description of strategic planning for the association. This process may be useful to future leaders and to various ACA entities (e.g., divisions, regions, state branches, corporate affiliates, committees) in creating their own strategic plans.
