Update on the Divisional Agreement and the new Governance Task Force
As it has been a few months since the signing of the Divisional Agreement by five of the PSIA/AASI divisions, here is a quick update on current events. The five divisions who have signed are still firmly behind the document as the best direction for each of our memberships. This document formalizes our business relationship by spelling out the roles and responsibilities of each of our business where they overlap and will be renewed on a yearly basis. Areas covered by the agreement are divisional boundaries, membership, national certifications, and logo ownership and use. As in any relationship, when roles and responsibilities are defined, each party is better able to work towards the mission. In this case, we are able to more efficiently serve our membership and work toward our shared mission of inspiring a lifelong passion for the mountain experience, helping people grow personally and professionally, creating positive learning experiences, and have more fun!
The four divisions that have not yet signed the Divisional Agreement are still working on the details that have given them pause. Each of these divisions (Rocky, Eastern, Intermountain, and Northwest) have different areas of concern ranging from a few minor details (which wording changes will fix), to PSIA logo ownership and reintroducing prior forms of membership. Although they continue to work on this document, they have put a higher priority on governance. As a division, we also feel this is a very important issue and will be fully participating in the Governance Task Force.
The issue of governance was brought forward as a concern by all divisions in our January 2012 meeting in Lakewood, CO. The first steps of forming the Governance Task Force has begun with the hiring of a governance expert, Bill Charney, who spoke with leadership from each division about their concerns, and then developed options for how this task force might be created. Though still at the beginning stages, the initial group is being put together by identifying objective representation from each of the divisions. More information about the Governance Task Force and Bill Charney can be found here on the National website.
I hope the end of the season has treated each of you well and that the upcoming summer months offers you the same! As always, it is a pleasure to be able to serve this division and please feel free to contact me with any questions.
