ASN Announces Draft Recommendations from the Governance Task Force
ASN's Governance Task Force was convened in 2016 with the charge to identify potential opportunities to strengthen governance and better enable ASN to implement the strategic work of the society.
The Task Force focused on three issues:
- Identifying and gaining agreement on changes to strengthen ASN governance to provide our society with a strong governance platform for future growth and success.
- Revisiting and updating the roles of councils, research interest sections and committees to determine the structure that best meets our current and future member needs
- Standardizing and simplifying processes for all member groups where possible (e.g. to select leaders, appoint members) to make the best use of the precious time from our member volunteers and to streamline the staff support needed for carrying out the increase of programmatic activities.
ASN members are invited to view the Governance Task Force webinar and provide their input on the draft recommendations provided. The webinar is available on demand on the
through February 12, 2018.
We appreciate your time and feedback on this very important initiative.
Each member who provides feedback by February 12th will be entered into a drawing to receive a free registration to Nutrition 2018 -
this can be used for yourself or gifted to an ASN non-member!
Thank you for your time and dedication to ASN.
