CAIDP produces Strategic Plans every five years. The strategic planning process is overseen by the Board and usually includes a facilitated strategic planning workshop that includes both the Board and members. The draft strategic plan is reviewed and adopted by the Board and presented to members at the AGM for endorsement.
One of the Board Vice Chairs takes responsibility for the strategic planning process and finalization of the strategic plan.
The Strategic Plans guide the CAIDP Board of Directors and the work of the Committees. Annual Reports to Members, prepared for the AGMs report on progress against the objectives laid out in the Strategic Plan.
