Special Purposes Committee

The role of the Special Purposes Committee is to provide advice to the President of the PSI Council on matters within the President’s remit that may arise between scheduled meetings of the Council. The Committee does not meet on a scheduled basis, but as needed and requested to do so by the President. The Committee is responsible for maintaining sufficient membership, and succession planning, for the Advisory Committees and makes recommendations to the Council for appointments to those committees. The Committee may also refer issues to any of the PSI’s Advisory Committees, or the Registrar, to be dealt with. The Committee reports to Council following each meeting.

Its Terms of Reference outline its remit.
