New Mission, Vision, and Core Values Unveiled

On July 31, 2019, your 2019-2020 FAPPO Board of Directors and Committee Chairs met for a strategic planning session. Our time together was very limited, but we were able to accomplish all of our goals; an updated mission statement, vision statement, core values and a new strategic plan with objectives to be the focus of our organizational endeavors for the next few years.

Everyone was engaged and there were lots of discussion about “What we do”, “Why we exist”, and “Who we do it for” in order to formulate the new mission (shown below). We then moved to discussions about our big audacious vision for the organization that resulted in the updated vision statement (shown below). From there we talked about our guiding principles and how we will operate as we carry out our mission and work towards our vision to define our core values (shown below). The final phase of our meeting focused on identifying our ‘strengths’, opportunities’, ‘aspirations’, and expected results as we crafted the new strategic plan objectives, measurable outcomes/goals, and initiatives (available in the “What’s New” tab on the website).

It is our hopes that you are as excited as we are about the upcoming year and all that is planned to sustain our association well into the future.

Our MISSION is to empower Florida Public Procurement Professionals through communication, education and networking opportunities.

Our VISION is to be the premier resource for knowledge and information on Public Procurement in Florida.
