About the Advisory Committee

Background:

The ISPCAN Advisory Committee is intended to meet several objectives, primarily creating a mechanism to involve members in a more active advisory role in ISPCAN. It also provides the Council with a sounding board, bringing voices of members more directly into Council deliberations, expanding ideas about new programs, goods, and services. The idea is to create a committee which is consulted on a quarterly basis on issues before the Council or to help identify issues of particular current concern. The opinions of the Advisory Committee are not binding on the Council. They serve an advisory function only.

 

Participation on and work of the committee entails no financial obligation to ISPCAN.

 

Who:   

Nine ISPCAN members in good standing from the following regions:

  1. United States
  2. Canada
  3. Latin America & the Caribbean
  4. Australia & New Zealand
  5. Southeast Asia
  6. Asia & the Pacific (except Australia, New Zealand & Southeast Asia)
  7. Africa
  8. Europe
  9. Middle East & the Mediterranean

How selected:

Nominations to the membership committee (self or by others). Similar criteria will be used to that for Board representation. The Membership committee reviews all nominations and recommends names for the approval of full Council.
