Strategic Planning

  • Imagine there are people now located in every state of the union that you want to direct to the same place. Each driver has your map in hand. The routes may differ, but if your directions are followed, everyone will end up at the rendezvous location at the same time. This is the purpose of the American Legion Auxiliary's strategic plan. With an eye on the future, this written “document of agreements” defines our mission focus – who we are, what we do, and why we do what we do – and tells us what to do next to ensure we meet with success.

    This look ahead three and five years out helps us set our priorities and establish action steps. We then communicate these to our units, departments, boards, and leadership teams and monitor progress made in meeting our goals. The hard work of planning is well worth the time and effort because it means we will be able to serve more veterans, members of the military and their families.

  • American Legion Auxiliary Strategic Plan

    The impact of an organization is measured by how well it meets its mission. Well-run organizations have one thing in common: a viable strategic plan that keeps the organization focused, is continually reviewed and updated for relevancy, and benchmarks its accomplishments. The Auxiliary's national strategic plan includes nine strategic goals that provide focus throughout the organization, all of which are forward-moving works in progress.
