The ISP Board began a strategic planning process last year. We solicited input (via survey) from all ISP members, policy listserv subscribers, the Special Commission to Advance Macro Practice, contributors to the CSWE Macro Curriculum Guide, and recipients of the CSWE Policy Practice in Field Education Initiative grants. We also interviewed leaders of the major social work organizations and our United for Macro partners. The response was terrific – thank you for participating! Your views have led to a re-envisioning of ISP’s mission and vision.

As we continue to focus on strategic planning, Policy Conference 2.0 and the Teaching Institute will not take place as usual in 2019. But they’ll be back in 2020, bigger and better than ever! We continue to welcome your
suggestions on how to make these events the best they can be.
