Strategic Plan -- 2014-2016

September 2013

NYPTA MISSION AND VISION

Core ideology describes an organization’s consistent identity that transcends all changes related to its relevant environment. Core ideology consists of two notions: core purpose (or mission)—the organization’s reason for being; and core values—essential and enduring principles that guide an organization. Envisioned future (or vision statement) conveys a concrete, but yet unrealized, vision for the organization. It consists of a clear and compelling catalyst that serves as a focal point for effort. Based on the Strategic Planning Session deliberations, the following is the core ideology and envisioned future for NYPTA:
