Introducing a Second Iteration of the OneFPA Network Draft Plan


To ensure FPA’s viability, strength, impact and relevance for current and future members and volunteers.


A transformative reorganization that unites FPA and its communities through greater alignment and integration. 


By dramatically increasing leadership participation in FPA and robustly beta-testing coordination and collaboration of key functions. 




We are pleased to introduce the Second Iteration of the OneFPA Network Draft Plan, and a 45-day comment period open through May 30. The Second Iteration of the OneFPA Network Draft Plan incorporates stakeholder input collected through the four-month Listening Tour but stays true to the original intent of the OneFPA Network vision. The new draft plan focuses on four key areas: The Structure of Participatory Governance; Beta-Testing Centralized Functionality; Commitments and Agreements; and Communication and Timing.


To inform the Second Iteration of the OneFPA Network Draft Plan, FPA leaders proactively engaged all 86 chapters to arrange Listening Tour meetings with 90 percent of chapter boards participating (77 out of 86 chapters). Additional meetings were held with a variety of key stakeholder groups, including members, corporate partners, chapter executives, FPA NexGen leaders, and past FPA presidents.


We are proud of the work that has been done to make the Second Iteration of the OneFPA Network Draft Plan a reality and want to acknowledge the outstanding work of the OneFPA Transition Task Force for their critical work in this process. We have taken the time to listen to our stakeholders and learn from their input, so we could adjust the plan in a manner that is responsive to their concerns.
