HRA Strategic Planning

The 2021 Strategic Plan was developed to enhance HRA’s value to HRA member organizations. The strategies that the Strategic Planning committee recommended to achieve those goals were the result of much input from the membership. These are designed to increase HRA members’ ability (directly or indirectly) to enhance the impact of their investment in research, and by doing so achieve HRA’s mission.

Acknowledging that there are more activities recommended than can be accomplished with existing HRA resources, the Implementation Framework was created to guide HRA staff, leadership, and membership in prioritizing. The plan is flexible to be able to adapt to changing circumstances. One of the first tasks is to designate a team to evaluate HRA’s progress toward these goals. If you have comments about the Plan, Framework, or would like to volunteer to help evaluate progress, email [email protected]. Your feedback is always much appreciated!
