Restructuring Implementation Task Force

Charge

Carry out the structural recommendations of the former RUSA Organization and Planning Committee. These recommendations were proposed and passed by the Board between January 2017 and June 2017.

  • Craft a new, efficient model for division review and reporting that streamlines the process for all. The model should incorporate goal setting combined with a method for continuous improvement. Committees and Sections should set their own goals taking direction from the RUSA strategic plan and additional RUSA goals conveyed by leadership.
  • Update the RUSA Policies and Procedures as necessary; create policies and procedures for new committees.
  • Support the newly created groups as they formalize (not sure how to word this)
  • Provide support for new committees in carrying out their charges.

Time Period
The Task Force will accomplish its work during the 2017-2018 year at which time the task force will dissolve.
