Policy & Programs (P&P) Subcommittees
The Alliance chartered a Policy and Programs Committee (P&P) in 2005 to provide advice and counsel to the Board of Directors on creation and execution of policy platforms, advocacy campaigns, and new programs. The Committee is chaired by two Alliance Board of Directors and membership is open to Associate members in good standing. In addition, the Committee co-chairs, Board and/or senior management may invite individuals to participate at technical advisors as deemed appropriate.
There are three issue areas of keen interest to Alliance Board and Associate members - finance, building envelope technologies, and the water-energy nexus - that warrant a specific focus. The Alliance is chartering and forming three P&P Subcommittees to develop and execute policies and programs in these three core areas. Each Subcommittee will be chaired by Associate member organizations and membership will be open to representatives of all Alliance Associate member companies and as with the P&P Committee, non-Associate member individuals may be appointed to provide technical assistance. We invite Associate members to contact Courtney Galatioto to join the P&P Commitee and/or the Subcommittees.
