Governance Committee - Jorge Ramirez, PhD, Chair
The Governance Committee has the responsibility of ensuring that the infrastructure, policy and procedures of the Organization, where such exist, are adhered to. Where policies and procedures do not exist, or where they currently no longer serve the Organization, the Governance Committee will develop such structures, policies and/or procedures.
In carrying out the duties of this Committee, the Governance Chair is to be guided first by the Constitution and By-laws, work closely with the Executive Committee and consult with all committee chairs.
The Chair of the Governance Committee must submit a report to the President, including all Governance sub-committees one month prior to Board retreats.
