The Executive Committee (EXCOM) is at the heart of the Action Alliance and its members have been carefully chosen to represent diverse perspectives from across our nation. In the spring of 2009, the Secretariat released a nomination survey to the general public. Subsequently, a nominating committee comprised of public sector and private sector suicide prevention leaders carefully reviewed the candidates based on the following criteria:
After the initial group of EXCOM members were selected, they attended the September 10, 2010 launch meeting of the Action Alliance. Since then, all new candidates for the Action Alliance are reviewed by the nominating committee, and all final decisions regarding membership are made by our public and privatesector co‐chairs.
Task Force Development
Task forces for the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention should be developed within the following guidelines:
Task Force Membership
When possible, task forces are co‐led by public sector and private sector members of the Executive Committee. When that is not possible, Executive Committee members can suggest co‐leaders to fill these roles. Once the co‐leads have been determined, they develop a 12‐month scope of work and choose the task force members who are best suited to achieve the proposed objectives.
