Strategic Framework

  • In 2018, TASA officially launched a long-range plan that will guide the association as it approaches its 100th anniversary in 2025 as well as a new logo and tagline to represent TASA’s vision. The TASA Strategic Framework — the result of more than a year of work by the TASA 2025 Task Force, a group of TASA members from across the state — lays out TASA’s aspirations and outlines the long-term strategies the association will use to reach them.
