SIOP Vision: To be recognized as the premier professional group committed to advancing the science and practice of the psychology of work.
SIOP Goals: SIOP will become the…
1. Visible and trusted authority on work-related psychology. This includes:
·          Heightened awareness within lay, business, scientific, and government communities of the role and value of I-O psychology in improving productivity and well-being in the workplace.
·          Greater outreach to the broader field of psychology and related disciplines and organizations (including organizations outside the United States), policy makers, the public, and the media.
2. Advocate and champion of I-O psychology to policy makers. This includes:

·          Increased efforts to obtain federal funding for I-O research.
·          Increased efforts to monitor and influence policy and legislation affecting human behavior at work.
·          Heightened awareness among top managers in business about the value of I-O psychology and I-O professionals.
3. Organization of choice of I-O professionals. This includes:
·          Increased enjoyment and satisfaction of members.
·          More members in all categories, including regular, Student, International, Affiliate, and Associate Members.
·          Higher annual retention rate.
·          Increased support for SIOP members in their efforts to study, apply, and teach the principles, findings, and methods of I-O psychology.
4. Model of integrated scientist–practitioner effectiveness that values research, practice, and education equally and seeks higher standards in all three areas. 
·          Increased collaboration and dialogue between academics and practitioners where science informs practice and practice informs science.
·          Increased collaboration and exchange of ideas with non-North American I-O professionals.
·          Decreased perception of fissure between academics and practitioners.
·          Clear and rigorous means of evaluating the quality of graduate training programs.
·          Clear and rigorous standards for practice.

Strategic Planning Goals:
1.     Support (as related to SIOP Goal #3):
o    Continue to coordinate with the Executive Office to ensure that our members receive timely CE notification and that the CE objectives are in line with the APA and HRCI standards for the April conference. (ongoing)
o    Continue to utilize survey feedback from our members (conference, workshops, LE) to ensure our CE offerings are aligned with our members’ needs. (ongoing)
2.     Understand & Integrate (as related to SIOP Goal #3):
o    Work with the Executive Office to analyze the membership tracking information related to both certification and licensure information to inform committee activities and customer targeting for the online Ethics computer-based training. (June-July)
o    Conduct an after action review of the conference submission process related to HRCI credits (working with HRCI, Executive Office, and Conference/Workshop Chairs)  (July-August)
o    Ensure we maximize the HRCI partnership. (ongoing)
3.     Expand (as related to #3):
o    Provide and produce one pilot online CE offering (Ethics is suggested topic, per Workshop/Conference chairs and CE Assessment data). (Initial content review due by June 6th)
o    Pilot offering CE in partnerships with local I/O organizations. (planning begins in June-implementation goal for Fall)
o    Explore other potential outside partnerships (e.g., ASTD). (ongoing)
Updates from Co-Chairs:
·          We reviewed the revisions to the Approval of Sponsors for Continuing Education Sponsor Approval Policies and Procedures Manual. Comments on behalf of SIOP were unnecessary. Revisions clarified policies and procedures.
·          We recorded what will become the initial online Ethics CE session during the April conference. The session was offered on Thursday, directly after the plenary, to a small invited audience. 
·          We are currently working with BlueSky, Joel, and the Executive Office to get the content online (including modules, pre-, post-test, and speaker evaluation) and to help price and market the course to our members.
·          We had preliminary discussions with the President of the Personnel Testing Council of Metropolitan Washington D.C. (PTC/MW) about partnering to expand CE offerings.
