Past Presidents Committee

Past Presidents Committee

The Past Presidents Committee has been established by the Executive Committee as they believed that Past Presidents possess a large reservoir of knowledge and experience of potential value to the ISSM, and they felt that a more formal mechanism for tapping into this experience was needed. The Executive Committee suggested that establishing a committee comprised of Past Presidents would provide a process for including Past Presidents of the ISSM in regular and special ISSM activities. The Past Presidents will provide advice to the Executive Committee and/or the Board of Directors upon their request or whenever the Committee feels this is appropriate. The Committee is encouraged to meet once a year and will communicate to the officers through the Immediate Past-President.
