Strategic Plan

Help Guide ACEP's Future!
Share your thoughts about the issues under consideration for the 2022-25 Strategic Plan

Comment on the Issues

As ACEP reaches the end of our current strategic plan and with new leadership at the helm, we have begun building the roadmap to guide the next three to five years. We are taking this opportunity to look big and be bold as we think about how the College can best serve you as individual emergency physicians, both now and in the future.

Some of the questions we’re seeking to answer include: How can we enhance connection and communication with you, our members? How can we tackle the challenges facing our specialty? What do our members need most from us? 

The six-month process is being guided by a highly experienced facilitator of strategic planning and involves ACEP leaders, members, and staff to ensure the final product reflects the sentiments AND NEEDS of our diverse membership.

We cannot create an effective roadmap without your input, so we are sharing the draft of a new strategic plan with members here. We will be incorporating stakeholder feedback into the final action plan, which we anticipate launching at the beginning of the year.

This is our unique chance to set the course for ACEP and your future as emergency physicians and we’re excited about where we’re going! We will keep you abreast throughout the process but please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or want to share initial thoughts.
