|About the Advisory Committee|
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.
Nine ISPCAN members in good standing from the following regions:
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.
Length of term:
Single 2 year term on the same cycle as Council elections. Cannot serve again for 3 more terms (6 years). Cannot simultaneously serve on the Advisory Committee and the Council. Individuals on the Advisory Committee can stand for election to the Council to commence with the conclusion of their term.
