In the coming year, the ASHG Board of Directors will begin a strategic planning period, and is seeking your input on what we do well and what we can do even better. In particular, the Board would like to know how ASHG can best support, represent, and advocate for the dynamic, diverse, and interdisciplinary field of human genetics. The new strategic plan will help guide how ASHG can serve you as members and leverage our collective efforts to advance the field.
To this end, we hope to better understand our current members and your priorities for our work through an important member survey. Launching this week and administered by our partners at McKinley Advisors, the survey invites your feedback on topics like:
- What are your professional needs and challenges?
- How can we best represent our diverse membership and enhance programs that serve you?
- What are the most pressing issues confronting the Society and the larger genetics community that we are well positioned to address?
- How can we better engage you in Society service opportunities, whether in public education, outreach and advocacy programs, or volunteer engagement?
Thank you for your input, and please be on the lookout for these opportunities!
