Program Committee Membership
work of the Alliance
is done by its Board of Directors and in its committees. An agency’s voice is
only as strong as the involvement of its executives on the working committees
of the Alliance.
Each of the seven program areas represented by the Alliance has a committee that determines and
monitors the policy agenda in that program area for the year: Adoption,
Education, Family-based Services, Foster Family Agency, Juvenile Justice,
Mental Health, and Residential Care. Member
agency executives declare the Program Committee(s) on which they wish to have their
agencies represented. y A member agency is entitled
to have one member with one vote on each program committee corresponding to a
program area in which the member agency has an active, accredited program. (Although
each member agency is limited to one voting committee member, there is no limit
on the number of agency personnel who may attend committee meetings.)y Because the program
committees are policy-making committees, membership is limited to CEOs or
Executive Directors of member agencies and to their senior management staff who
can speak for and act on behalf of the member agency in that program area.Member
agency executives are strongly encouraged to assure that their agencies are
represented on all relevant program committees.
To join a Committee, you must first be added as an Alliance Member Staff to your agency profile. You will then be able to request access to all Alliance Committees; once approved you will receive emails, join the forum(s), and be included in discussions within the committee.
