NCSCP Strategic Plan 2019 -2020

The National Council on Skin Cancer Prevention (NCSCP) Strategic Plan serves as a road map and guides the NCSCP in accomplishing its goals. The Strategic Plan helps to measure how far the NCSCP has come in achieving strategic goals, and help us recognize where adjustments in approaches and programs must be made to achieve better results. The NCSCP Steering Committee provides direction to members in making progress toward the NCSCP’s goals and objectives. The Steering Committee reports annually to NCSCP members about the organization’s progress in achieving the plan. The NCSCP’s priorities may change due to organizational achievements, new opportunities and unexpected challenges. The NCSCP’s Strategic Plan is intended to serve not as a set of rigid requirements but rather as a flexible guide and tool that will evolve as the NCSCP moves with common direction in 2019 and beyond. The 4 goals, 11 objectives, and 30 strategies were adopted by the NCSCP members. An annual report is shared each spring to keep members apprised of progress in achieving the strategic plan. NCSCP members represent the nation’s premier researchers, clinicians and advocates for melanoma and skin cancer prevention. We convene biannually to continue our collaborative work to reduce the often devastating impact of skin cancer and melanoma.
