Strategic Plan

Strategic Plan

The Academy's action plan represents a strategic vision for how the Academy Enterprise can support and shape the future of the audiology profession.

Visioning

In fall 2016, the Academy Board of Directors hosted a visioning session that included representation from all Academy enterprise partners (AAA, AAAF, ABA, ACAE, and SAA) and staff.  Over the course of several days, the group identified key societal trends to monitor and address on behalf of audiology as a profession.  Key issues include audiology workforce projections, changes in service delivery, reimbursement uncertainty, regulations, public demand for affordable healthcare delivery and treatment options, clinical training challenges, and much more.  The group identified strategic goals for the enterprise to position the profession relative to these trends.   From this session evolved an updated action plan for the enterprise. 

Organizational Structure

The work of the action plan is carried out within the structure of the organization.  In July 2017, the Academy Board of Directors approved a new organizational structure that integrates the partners across the enterprise and aligns the work of the organization.  

The new structure includes councils, a new layer in the governance of the organization: Leadership, Academic & Professional Standards, Professional Development, Scientific Advisory & Research, Advocacy, and Outreach.  The many committees and task forces that do much of the work of the organization report to the councils or, in some instances, directly to the Academy Board of Directors. A model of the councils and committees is available to provide further detail on how they function within the governance structure.
