2018 – 2021 Strategic Plan

Our Strategic Plan was a two-year collective undertaking by staff and board members that incorporates feedback and guidance from Society members and additional stakeholders.

Board of Directors

Board members are responsible for fiscal and managerial oversight of the Society including the supervision and oversight of the vision and mission of the Society. They are responsible for making decisions, delegating work, and assuring decisions are carried out in the manner intended. Board members also serve as ambassadors for the Society. The Board is essential for shaping the future of our work. We are not currently seeking new Board members.

Committees, Subcommittees, and Working Groups

Committees, subcommittees, and working groups are essential for shaping the future of our work and each have a distinct responsibility. We are not currently seeking new Committee, Subcommittee, or Working Group members.


Staff of the Society are committed to pursuing our vision of just and equitable abortion and contraception informed by science.
