The purpose of the SIOP Governance Committee is to provide strategic direction to the Society on governance issues and oversees the implementation of targeted governance activities together with the SIOP Board of Directors.
At SIOP, we want our governance to be based on international best practice: this means systems and processes that assure the overall direction, integrity, effectiveness, efficiency, supervision, transparency and accountability of the society. To achieve this, the SIOP Board of Directors has established a standing Governance Committee.
The SIOP Governance Committee is a standing committee of the Board of Directors and provides strategic direction to the Society on governance issues and oversees the implementation of targeted governance activities together with the SIOP Board of Directors.
The overall goal of the Governance Committee is to develop policies, procedures and standards that govern the operations of the Society. In addition, the Committee aims to assist the Board of Directors in developing principles and procedures related to committees/task forces/working groups/networks and Continental branches of the Society, and monitor, on behalf of the Board of Directors, their status and relevancy.
