ASPHO values good governance and promotes practices that support high-performing organizations through a structure that encourages a diverse and inclusive environment. ASPHO is led by a highly engaged board that provides strategic direction and works in partnership with staff to carry out its mission and goals.
The Leadership Development Committee was charged by the Board of Trustees to “implement leadership development more purposefully considering current practices and build a strong and effective pipeline of volunteer leadership talent for ASPHO through a transparent process of recruiting leaders, on-boarding, and communicating." This effort is intended to provide value to both the organization and to individual volunteers.
ASPHO is committed to a diverse and inclusive leadership that brings a wide variety of perspectives and experiences to inform our decision making and ensure that we best serve our members. Several improvements to the nomination process, terms of positions and election methodology are being recommended to improve our diversity objectives.

The governance structure of ASPHO aligns with member-driven strategic goals created to guide the Society for the next 3-5 years. Strategies and tactics identified to support each goal are prioritized and implemented by committees and working groups charged with developing plans that support and advance goals. Members are encouraged to volunteer on these committees to advance the Society's objectives and the field of pediatric hematology/oncology.
ASPHO’s strategic plan guides the organization by prioritizing efforts over the next 3-4 years. Five strategic goals provide the framework for committee and task force activities to advance our mission and support members in their critical work.
