Long Range Planning Committee
- Committee is a standing committee of the ECBT
- Number of members is eight, all serving ex officio. Members include the President, Secretary, Treasurer, Executive Director, Board of Trustees’ Chair, 2nd and 3rd year Executive Committee members and the third-year elected Trustee. The President serves as chair.
The President Elect/Immediate Past President, the fourth-year Executive Committee member, and fifth year Trustee have standing invitations to attend LRPC meetings.
Meetings of the LRPC occur twice a year, just prior to every regular ECBT meeting. The LRPC offers a forum for discussion of long range issues and long range planning. The membership of the LRPC represents the AMS’s main governing bodies and it includes a mix of short-term and long-term members. As such, it is uniquely positioned to consider issues that fall outside the purview of other bodies or that cut across several committees.
The role of the LRPC has evolved over time. In its first few years, it performed major reviews of the Society’s activities and it initiated the strategic planning process in the late 1980s. From time to time, it has played a key role in reviewing governance structure and the scope of responsibilities of key governance bodies.
This committee has been designated at LEVEL B.

Confidential material should be noted, so that it can be handled in a confidential manner.
