CTA Adopts New Strategic Long Term Plan
"After months of talking with, listening to and getting input from CTA members and staff, committees were formed correlating to eight key areas identified upon which to focus and build a strategic plan to lead CTA for the next three to five years. These committees developed goals and tasks in each focus area. Out of those goals and tasks, a final Strategic Plan was developed and was submitted in October to CTA State Council for review." At the January 2014 meeting of the CTA State Council the new CTA Strategic Long Term Plan was unanimously approved. Click HERE to read more about this plan at the CTA website.
