PLUS Strategic Plan - 2012 and Beyond

In November 2012 the PLUS Board of Trustees formally approved a new strategic plan for PLUS, including a new mission statement for the Society. This plan was the culmination of a planning process that began in February and involved nearly 70 volunteer leaders, as well as PLUS staff. The Board of Trustees is very excited about this plan and how it will help PLUS continue to be on the leading-edge of the industry.

To be the global community for the professional liability insurance industry by providing essential knowledge, thought leadership and career development opportunities.
The new mission statement better summarizes what PLUS has always been about – industry-leading events and educational materials, and networking opportunities that are second to none. At the heart of this mission, which doubles as the organization’s vision, are the four Core Values of PLUS.
