Forum Executive Committee

Executive Committee of the Forum

The Western Academic Leadership Forum is governed by an executive committee comprised of 15 individuals, with one selected from the members’ official representatives in each state. This group has oversight responsibility for all of the activities of the Forum. It meets face-to-face in the fall to plan the annual meeting and quarterly by conference call.

The committee is governed by a Chair with overall leadership responsibility for activities of the Forum and a Vice Chair who is responsible for the program at the annual meeting. The program chair usually assumes the position of Chair at the conclusion of that meeting.

WICHE serves as the fiscal agent.
