Our 2013 Goals: It’s Time to Move from Development to Execution

2012 was a “year of achievement” for AEM as we developed and implemented three key initiatives to meet the objectives of the AEM Strategic Plan.

These three initiatives are: 1) new financial model, 2) two-year advocacy plan, and 3) a services plan to respond to the membership survey results. The goals of these three initiatives will profoundly change how your Association operates on behalf of its members and the industry.

The implementation of these initiatives is only the first step. Now we need to successfully achieve the ambitious objectives of these initiatives.

The 2013 AEM Goals continue the implementation of the Strategic Plan by focusing on the execution of these initiatives and the development of new initiatives in member engagement, market information services and global business development.

Execution of the first three initiatives will enable us to earn the financial resources necessary to lead in advocacy and enhance services to best serve our members’ needs.

Here are the 2013 AEM Goals. Please take a moment to review this list. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. As the year progresses, I will report on our progress.

Thank you.
