Vision statement outlining the critical and/or substantive issues facing the NSCA, specific goals for the NSCA, and an indication of how such goals may be achieved

Without reservation, the NSCA has respectively earned the distinction as the world leader in the strength and conditioning arena. The continued advancements within the NSCA are true indicators of the inherent impact openly displayed throughout the entire organization. Certainly these accomplishments to date have established solid foundations, but select developmental opportunities remain as we strive to maintain our established unity and integrity. Many specialized NSCA resources are available to our diverse membership but the potential for expanding these assets within and outside our organizational parameters remain realistically obtainable.

For example, a major strength of any organization lies deep within its proactive membership. One method for increased involvement should focus on implementing creative strategies to enhance volunteer opportunities for our diverse membership. Specifically, active engagement serving on committees, special interest groups, and the distribution of applied research based information via NSCA local, state, regional and national conference presentations and journal publications within ones specialized discipline are available. In addition, there is tremendous opportunity to recruit more states to deliver NSCA annual meetings which also leads to possibilities of creating and implementing additional annual NSCA regional meetings. Broadening the scope of NSCA annual conference options, in a timely fashion and at varied locations, effectively accommodates current members and assists in recruiting new members. This strategy would create a domino effect whereby NSCA examination development symposia’s could be offered prior to these conferences allowing those sites to serve as NSCA Exam Hosts providing increased opportunities to earn our distinguished credentials: CSCS, NSCA-CPT, TSAC-F and CSPS. Serving as a NSCA exam host realistically opens potentials for universities to serve as NSCA Educational Recognized Programs (ERP). ERP options generate viable specialized practical research based education in strength and conditioning thereby endorsing a much greater professional student involvement. These calculated participation opportunities can be enhanced when utilizing technological resources to reach viable media outlets (podcasts, webcasts, e-mail blats etc.) within and outside the association, thereby further enhancing our membership involvement and the NSCA’s visibility.

Finally, within any dynamic society it is critical to instill an open line of communication at every level of the organizational hierarchy. This communicative approach positively lends itself to being receptive to creative growth thereby meeting more professional needs of our specialized membership. Becoming actively involved with many of the NSCA volunteer activities is an effective way to heighten the prospects of impactful communication, thus promoting specific professional and organizational advancement. Positive communiqué also welcomes former members to return to the association as well as other allied professions to openly collaborate with and promote the NSCA as the world-leader in strength and conditioning. Together, it is vital that we continue to move the NSCA and its affiliates forward with measured determination and passion.
