Steering Committee

Each member group has a seat on the Forum's Steering Committee, giving members the opportunity to participate on a regular basis in the planning of Forum activities and the formulation of Forum policy.

Steering Committee members receive drafts of position statements in advance of publication, and they in turn gather comments from their colleagues and transmit them back to the Forum staff so that appropriate edits and changes may be made in the policy document. In this manner the Forum seeks to ensure that all member boards have the opportunity for thoughtful input on all policy statements made on behalf of the Forum.
