Our Strategic Plan

At the June 2012 meeting of the Assateague Coastal Trust Board of Directors meeting, a new five-year Strategic Plan for the organization was adopted unanimously.

This document guides the vision of ACT for the next five years – a vision that states the coastal bays watershed of Delmarva will have a healthy watershed and a strong, sustainable economy that thrives on swimmable, fishable, drinkable water – and also establishes a set of values centered around clean water, sustainable watersheds, and an interconnectedness with nature.

Four main goals were set for the organization, outlined below. See the full 2012-2017 Strategic Plan.

  • To promote fishable, swimmable, drinkable waters through monitoring, enforcement and advocacy for environmental policies that protect the coastal bays watershed.

  • To instill an ethic of responsible stewardship and respect for our shared ecosystem through individual and community actions.

  • To create a diversified, sustainable funding base.

  • To strengthen the board, staff and membership to support the mission.
