A strategic plan for the Citizen Science Association
Guiding our growth through 2022
In a rapidly evolving field, one that thrives on challenging the traditional roles and norms of science, how can this young association build a new kind of engaged community to advance our collective work?
Based on insights shared by members, potential members, and leaders in boundary fields, we have crafted a plan for three years of strategic growth. Together, we will work to build CSA as a responsive association, one that reflects the dynamic nature and collaborative spirit distinguishing this community and practice.
Below is an overview of the plan’s four primary goals. We encourage you to read the full document for details on strategies, foundational work, and a reflection on our values and our niche.
“The Citizen Science Association (CSA) is a member-driven organization that connects people from a wide range of experiences around one shared purpose: advancing knowledge through research and monitoring done by, for, and with members of the public. …”Opening of CSA’s strategic plan
These four goals interact and reinforce each other, and build momentum in the field to support, recognize, and advance excellent work by our members, our partners, and the broader community invested in citizen science.
