4. That the 2nd Strategic Plan is designed to allow for all Committees, Regions/Tiers, and Board of Directors to submit Action Plans and Progress reports for each of the 3 years (2024-2027) so that the Strategic Plan Progress reports will accurately reflect the accomplishments of all NAHPL entities as they relate to the Strategic Plan.
