Now that you understand ACSA’s structure, let’s look at the work we will be doing this year.
YOUR LEADERSHIP ROLE IN COMMUNICATING ACSA’S MESSAGE A top priority for every ACSA leader is sharing ACSA’s mission, vision and priorities with members and potential members. This information should be shared repeatedly and should be made a focal point at all ACSA events.
FRAMING ALL COMMUNICATIONS Every action an ACSA leader takes – from planning an event to delivering a speech to meeting with legislators to communicating through email – should center on ACSA’s vision, mission and priorities. Sharing ACSA’s message and linking it to personal stories, reflections and local successes will go a long way to ensuring the success of ACSA.
