Advisory & Steering Committees

The Steering and Advisory Committees are at the core of the Institute and drive the many programs and initiatives. Providing leadership, direction and guidance, Steering and Advisory Committee members are thought leaders in every sense of the term. They are selfless in sharing their insights and lessons learned in order to improve not only the Institute but all of its participating organizations. Supporting these Committees are the four Institute subcommittees: Events, Outreach, Participation, and Research.

In addition to our subcommittees, the Institute has launched a series of workgroups: Contractor Management, EHS Communications, Health & Wellbeing, Leading Indicators, and SIF Prevention. These topical groups allows for direct knowledge transfer and benchmarking on key issues amongst members, and also allows new ideas and projects to bubble up based on member interest.
