IPA’s New Committees and Committee Interest Groups

Thank you for your interest in applying to be an IPA Committee Member or signing up for our Committee Interest Groups.

Our committee structure and processes have changed to address a key priority in our strategic plan: “Build a more streamlined, productive and effective committee structure.” After gathering input from across the IPA, a Task Force thoroughly evaluated various options and presented the new streamlined  structure to the Board, who approved it in February.
Committee Leadership: To ensure a smooth transition to our new structure, Chairs and Chair Elects for each committee are currently being confirmed and will be announced later this month.

Committee Members: All IPA members are eligible to apply to serve as Committee Members. Each committee will have 10-12 committee members. Typically terms will run from January – December. However, given the time needed to implement this new approach, those selected now will serve an 18-month term (June 2020 – December 2021).  

Committee Interest Groups (CIGs): Each Committee has a corresponding interest group that is open to all IPA members who want to stay up-to-date and provide input on the topics that are being addressed. In addition, when specific Task Forces are formed, participants will primarily be recruited from the Committee Interest Groups.
