MISSION: The Strategic Leadership and Resource Committee (SLRC) is focused on three core initiatives: 1) develop resources to map out multiple ways to achieve volunteer leadership opportunities, 2) ensure continuity of IAVM offerings throughout education and professional development programs, IAVM text book, written and electronic resources, and 3) create resources for our members that maximizes management committees’ missions in offering opportunities for members not serving on said committees to volunteer their talents in generating additional quality learning resources for our members. The SLRC does not direct management committees on each committee’s missions, instead collaborates on identifying continuity between the management committee’s work and member needs.

PURPOSE: The Committee serves to assist IAVM President & CEO initiatives in generating a quality and robust return on the individual member investment on membership in IAVM in educating, advocating for, and inspiring industry professionals.

Structure:  This is a management committee meaning it is constituted to meet regularly or on an “as needed” basis to provide content and input to staff to enable significant progress toward the Results Policies set by the Board of Directors.

Volunteer Code of Conduct:

Be Considerate

You are working with others as a team so be considerate of how your actions or contribution affects your colleagues and the association as a whole.

Be Respectful

Treat other IAVM members, committee members and staff with respect in words, tone and action.

Be Available

Check your e-mails regularly and answer them promptly—even if it's "I'll get back to you."
