Planning/Governance Team

This working group has been created to address the objective within ICON to provide a multi-stakeholder, international and neutral forum for exploring health and environmental issues. To accomplish this objective, the group has developed strategic tasks in the following areas:

  • Provide direction to planning of meetings/workshops of the organization that focus attention on priority EHS issues 
  • Review and maintain a recruiting plan to achieve a balance of participation among and within the various stakeholder groups of the organization
  • Maintain a governance structure and operational plan for the organization, including definition of member/participant levels within organization    (Governance document) 
  • Establish boundaries to be used in developing Policy Statements from ICON

This Working Group works at a strategic level - operational detail arising from group strategic guidance is handled by ICON staff.
