The following three strategic principles were developed by ESA's Governing Board as the guiding force behind how the Society pursues our mission. These principles are used to guide ESA's year-to-year goals and operations. The ESA Governing Board approved these principles on November 16, 2011.
- ESA has a social responsibility to develop ALL of its members.
- The science of entomology is global; therefore, ESA is global.
- To realize our profession’s full potential, ESA must increase its influence.
