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.
