Strategic Plan

ASTSWMO has developed a new strategic plan every three to five years and this 2020-2024 Strategic Plan is ASTSWMO’s sixth strategic plan. Since 2001, Strategic Plans have focused explicitly on actions to be undertaken by the Board and Subcommittees that will support the Association’s mission. Priority goals, desired outcomes, and implementation mechanisms have varied over the years.

The 2020-2024 Strategic Plan is organized around three main goals:

  • Provide assistance to the membership.
  • Enhance and cultivate partnerships.
  • Work towards a long-term sustainable organization.

To achieve our goals, ASTSWMO will continue to expand its role as a convener of dialogue, strengthen its national policy voice, and support initiatives and innovations relative to our mission. In the process, ASTSWMO will actively explore strategic partnerships where appropriate and will communicate effectively on complex issues in a manner that contributes to public understanding and facilitates transferability of program practices among States.
