Preferred Futures (formerly known as the Strategic Plan)
The Academy’s strategic plan sets the course to shape the future of the audiology profession. The Academy’s plan is a roadmap designed to take the profession to where it should go, a set of Preferred Futures (PFs).
PFs are goals that we wish to accomplish at a future point in time. Each of our four PFs is achieved with a set of objectives that helps to advance the profession through that PF. The planning horizon is approximately three years with annual updates. The Academy’s priorities flow from these PFs, enabling the Academy to address specific needs and issues facing the profession. The Academy Board of Directors also uses PFs to develop meeting agendas, creating an ongoing review, which allows the Academy to use time and resources wisely.
