Task Force on Institutional Issues Members
The IPA is concerned with group and organizational dynamics, but this area has received relatively little attention until now. It is proposed to create a Task Force which will scope this field and develop proposals for longer-term IPA work. This will include putting more focus on the issue of group and organizational dynamics, raising awareness among the IPA's Members, and acting as a resource for parts of the IPA (such as component societies or training institutes) which may wish to use the skills and expertise of the group to support them.
The Task Force will:
- by the end of November 2014, produce a report for the Board setting out proposals for how this work could be taken forward in the longer-term;
- advise the Board, ExCom and the officers about the group and organizational dynamics of any particular situations referred by them to the Task Force;
- develop proposals for the web editorial board and the Boston Congress Programme Committee for how group and organizational dynamics can be given an appropriate profile among the IPA's Members.
Composition and budget
It is proposed that the Task Force will consist of a chair, plus two members from each IPA Region.
The Task Force will do most of its work electronically, but $15,000 provision will be made in case it is necessary for it to hold a face-to-face meeting during 2014.
Approved by the Board January 2014.
