AHEAD KPCs evolve in response to the interests of the membership and emerging professional trends. As a new topic takes on importance, members may propose a new KPC to bring interested members together to develop expertise and resources.
Members interested in starting a new KPC should draft a proposal for Board of Directors consideration. The proposal should include:
1. A mission statement that aligns with AHEAD's mission, vision, and core values.
2. An identified purpose and need.
- How does the proposed KPC meet needs not currently addressed by a current KPC?
3. Names and contact information for a primary and secondary KPCrepresentative.
4. Names and contact information for at least ten (10) AHEAD members supportive of the proposed KPC and interested in participating.
5. Description of how the proposed KPC will contribute to the mission of AHEAD and help improve practice around a specific professional area.
The Board of Directors Liaison to the KPC will present the proposal to the full Board for a vote on approval. The proposing members will be informed of the decision by the Liaison.
