Basic Principles for the Creation, Renewal and Termination of IPPA Networks


1. For Organized Sections

Any two members may propose to the Secretary the formation of an organized section which advances the goals and mission of the IPPA. If appropriate, the Secretary will refer the proposal to the Network Committee who will work with the proposers and Secretary to develop terms of reference for the section and prepare a recommendation to the College concerning the possible creation of the section.

2. For National & Regional Policy Networks

Any national or regional policy association which would like to be affiliated with the IPPA should approach the Secretary with their aims and plans. If appropriate, the Secretary will work with the Network Committee to prepare a proposal and Terms of Reference for the Executive Committee on possible affiliation.

Each Term of Reference will include the name of the convenors and a mechanism for their election. Each Convenor will sit on the Network Committee ex-Officio.

Unless otherwise specified in the MOU the terms of reference any IPPA network proposal will contain a sunset clause specifying that the agreement expires after four years unless renewed for another term by the mutual agreement of the organization/affiliate and the College or EC (as needed) a year preceding expiration.
