Strategic Plan

As of July 1, 2024, TWS has a new strategic plan! Over the next 5 years and beyond, TWS will maintain, enhance, or expand its performance and leadership in each mission priority area:

  1. Building Community – engage and evolve an inclusive community of diverse wildlife professionals to conserve wildlife and their habitats
  2. Supporting Professionals – enhance support and provide resources to ensure professionals effectively influence the future of wildlife conservation
  3. Exercising External Influence – TWS is an effective voice and a trusted resource for wildlife science, conservation, and management

Each year, TWS will take action on and track progress of each of the goals, objectives, and strategies identified for each mission-driven priority in the strategic plan. Priority tactics aligned with each set of strategies will be developed into annual operations plans, along with performance metrics, staff resources, and budgets needed to achieve results. Many of the objectives and strategies in the plan are aspirational for TWS and implementation will depend on securing additional budget resources or significant volunteer service from TWS members.
