Chapters: Atlanta

About Us

The Atlanta Chapter of the ASP is a community of strategic thinkers dedicated to building individual and organizational effectiveness through planning and execution. Our community includes representatives from most of the top Atlanta area businesses and includes a variety of industries. Members learn from and network with some of the best and the brightest strategic leaders in the Southeast.

Our programs are held in the mornings on the 2nd Friday of each month. We alternate between speaker presentations and interactive roundtable discussions with practical exercises, covering a variety of strategy-related topics. Networking opportunities with the speaker(s) and other attendees are included in all of our meetings.

Opportunities for further involvement, through participation on specific committees and Board membership, provide further opportunities for learning and networking.

The Atlanta Chapter of the ASP has started its own group on LinkedIn (Association for Strategic Planning — Atlanta) to share strategic insights and information, as well as additional information about our upcoming events. Please visit and join us on LinkedIn.
