Advisory Board

Main content start

Our Advisory Board helps guide and support SIEPR. Advisory Board members make both an intellectual and financial commitment that is a key component to our ability to achieve our mission. They are also active in helping to facilitate and disseminate research.

The SIEPR Advisory Board has several subcommittees that work with staff and the director to accomplish the mission and goals of the organization. The Executive Committee reviews the goals and long-range plans of the institute; the Development Committee assists with plans and specific requests for support; the Communications Committee works on the messaging and public relations functions of the institute; and the Program Committee helps to establish criteria and contacts for speakers for various events. These subcommittees reflect the Advisory Board’s commitment to and involvement with the institute.
