Development of UCAA’s Strategic Plan
This Annual Report is organized according to the framework provided by the UCAA’s revised
strategic plan. The plan was revisited and adapted from an earlier version dating back to 2007-08.
The UCAA created a Strategic Planning Subcommittee in 2011 to develop a document that would
align with the strategic plan effort undertaken by the UC Foundation around the same time. The
subcommittee’s work formed the basis for the UCAA strategic plan, which was “finalized” in the
spring of 2012. However, the plan is meant to be a living document, updated annually by the
collective efforts of key volunteer leaders and UCAA and UC staff.
