Implementing the SAR Plans for the Future
With the creation of the SAR Implementation Committee, we will review the various developmental plans from the most recent meetings and take the steps necessary to put them into place and move the SAR forward

Enhancing the SAR Legacy
The SAR has the ability to expand its reach to our youth with all current Youth Programs. This year we will coordinate our efforts to expand the reach to all of our Societies and Chapters

Develop a strategy to influence the National discussion on Education Standards
This will be one of the directives for the Education Committee to explore the options for developing this influence and making it happen.

Committee structure
The SAR as a volunteer organization survives using committees. This year we will implement ways of improving communications, following directives and examining the effectiveness of our National Committees.

SAR structure
As we have grown and society and technology have changed, the effectiveness of our governance and our organizational structure needs some adjustments to bring it more in line with the current methods used in business and society in general.
