ELPC’s Advisory Council members provide valuable input, specific expertise and expanded networks to help ELPC succeed. The advisors serve as strategic volunteers, without compensation, and do not have any organizational governance responsibilities.
ELPC Advisory Councils operate differently depending on their focus and location. New Advisory Council members are often recruited and appointed by the current Council members in consultation with ELPC staff. There are no formal terms of service. Most ELPC Advisory Councils meet twice each year, and members engage with other Council members and with ELPC staff on an intermittent basis outside scheduled meetings. Some of the Advisory Councils have a designated Chair who works with the relevant ELPC staff to organize the meetings and agenda.
