ASERL adopts new Strategic Framework, revised Mission & Values Statements

Snippet: "ASERL Ahead 2027" Strategic Framework

On November 29, 2023 ASERL members overwhelmingly adopted a new strategic framework to guide the Association’s programming for the 2024-2027 time period.  Called “ASERL Ahead – 2027,” the new framework builds on the success of ASERL’s 2020-2023 strategy, while also streamlining the document to make it more memorable and easier to describe to others.  At the same time, the membership also adopted revisions to ASERL’s Mission and Values Statements.

A new webpage contains the full text of these documents.  A PDF version is also available.
