Collaboration Area Plan

Executive Committee Objective:

The Executive Committee acts on behalf of the ESIP Assembly during the interim times between Assembly meetings. The committee is comprised of the ESIP officers (President and Vice President), standing and administrative committee chairs and category 1, 2 and 3 representatives*. The committee meets monthly and generally reviews the major issues facing the organization, weighing pros and cons and making preliminary decisions, to be ratified by the Assembly electronically or in-person at a meeting.

  • Votes for Executive Committee members representing each ESIP category can be cast only by ESIP Federation members of that category.
