1.         Sign attendance sheet.

2.         Introductions:  Your name, your association and your title within association, your employer.

Also answer the following questions:  (i) What is the most important benefit you     your association feels it gets from its    membership in VAPA and (ii) What would     you, as the delegate for your association like to see accomplished at today’s         strategic planning meeting?

3.         Brainstorming Session:

  • How has VAPA changed since its establishment in 1989?
  • What is VAPA “About”?  Has it changed from what is currently stated on its website?
  • Has the “Purposes and Goals” changed for VAPA or does it remain as it is stated on its website?  Are the “Goals” still realistic?  See attachment 2.
  • Some associations have a Mission Statement.  Does VAPA need one?

Should the VAPA Bylaws, dated 9/22/2007, be reviewed and updated by the delegates?
