Commodore Vass's United States Coast Guard Auxiliary Strategic Plan 2012-2016, originally issued in November 2010, has been updated effective March, 2012. According to Assistant National Commodore for Planning and Performance Fred Gates, Auxiliary leadership has re-examined the roles our organization plays in support of the U.S. Coast Guard, and is re-emphasizing the organization's role in recreational boating safety -- without diminishing the Auxiliary's contributions to maritime safety and security.

A downloadable copy of the revised Strategic Plan may be found on the Leadership Page under "Auxiliary Strategic Plan".
