The primary purpose of the planning and evaluation committee is to identify emerging trends and challenges that effect the ability of ATS to accomplish its missions, and provide advice and recommendations regarding ATS policy and service. The Committee periodically evaluates the effectiveness of the Society in accomplishing its mission and goals and in serving its members and the public by reviewing Society activities and accomplishments in specific areas. In conjunction with the Executive Committee, it also chooses specific areas for evaluation.

Benchmarks, 2020-2021:
1. Complete the Committee’s recommendations for Data Dashboards and Visioning process based on the proposals from the March 2019 Vision Workshop and finalize measures of success in improving the functioning and communications among assemblies and committees over the next 5 years.

2. Coordinate with the International Activities Task Force, International Health Committee and Membership Committee to develop strategies aimed at increasing the relevance of the society to its international members.

3. Propose metrics to monitor progress toward recommended best practices for Assemblies and Committees and to track the outcomes of international member activities, including engagement and participation in Society’s programs. Use the ATS Domo database to establish tracking and outcomes reports.

4. Develop a communication working group to recommend strategies for outreach to different demographics, including international members. Propose and evaluate social media communication tools as a means for education and networking.

5. Finalize cycle to review and evaluate proposed new Special Interest Groups. Triage long-standing Special Interest Groups to relevant areas of the Society for permanent oversight.

6. In collaboration with MITT, evaluate the Society’s opportunities for millennials and mid-career professionals to better understand their educational and career needs. Conduct a gap analysis of the available programs and recommend any needed adjustments and proposed outcomes.
