Strategic Plan

The Board of Directors is embarking on a strategic planning process that will produce a plan to guide the organization and the profession for the next five years and your input is crucial to that process. The data gained from this survey will be used to make decisions concerning the short-and long-term activities of the association. We estimate the survey will take you 10 - 15 minutes.

The information you provide will be kept confidential and used only for strategic planning purposes. You have the option to provide your name, email address, and telephone number so that we may contact you for further information. This option is completely voluntary and not required. Providing your information will automatically enter you into a drawing for a FREE one year ATRA membership. 

Thank you for providing information for the strategic planning process. If you have any questions or comments, you may contact Monica Gould, our strategic planning consultant, or any ATRA Board of Directors member.
