Leadership Support Council


    As the coordinating council for the ASA’s committee structure, the LSC will be responsible for the following activities:
  • assisting the President-elect with identifying candidates for committees and making appointments to committees (recognizing that the President-elect has the final say in making appointments)
  • advising the President-elect concerning the effective use of committees in presidential initiatives designed to meet the goals of the Strategic Plan.
  • orientation of committee chairs (this will be organized largely by ASA staff with guidance from the appointed members of the LSC);
  • orientation for incoming Board members on the use of committees to accomplish strategic goals (this will be done through the Executive Director);
  • working with ASA staff to periodically review the committee website to continually improve functionality for committees and membership;
  • advising the Board on committee policy questions ;
  • advising the Board on the creation of new committees; and
  • reviewing committee charges.
  • Composition: The Leadership Support Council has ten members, all of whom are considered full voting members. The President-Elect of the ASA serves as the Chair. The President Elect also appoints/reappoints (when necessary) five of the committee members for three year terms. Four of these appointed members also serve as the Vice Chairs of the Awards, Education, Membership and Professional Issues & Visibility Councils. The fifth appointed member is responsible for coordinating JSM sessions that are proposed and organized by committees and also serves on the JSM Program Committees as the representative of the ASA committees. The remaining four members of the Committee are the Past President, who also serves as Chair of the Awards Council, and the three Vice Presidents, who also serve as the Chairs of the Education, Membership and Professional Issues & Visibility Councils.
