The Intersectional Council Steering Committee (ISC-SC) has fourteen members and conducts ISC activities between the Annual Meetings. The 14 members consist of 10 members elected by the Intersectional Council, plus the ISC-SC immediate past chair. In addition, one Steering Committee position is appointed for a three-year term by the Executive Board as part of the leadership appointment process. There is also a student representative who holds the position of the Student Assembly Chair-Elect, an Affiliate representative who is the Council of Affiliates Chair-Elect, and a Caucus representative who is the Caucus Collaborative Chair.

This group meets face-to-face twice a year and meets monthly via Zoom. Only ISC members are eligible to run for a three-year term on the Steering Committee. These include Section Chairs, Chairs-Elect and Immediate Past Chairs. Three new ISC-SC members are elected annually.

The Steering Committee assists Sections with internal management and communication. The ISC-SC also reviews and comments on applications for SPIGs and Forums and submits comments to the Executive Board.

Role and Responsibility of Committee Members:

  • Work within the framework of the APHA Strategic Plan by identifying specific goals and objectives which best fit the purpose of the ISC.
  • Function as a proactive body on issues of concern to the Sections.
  • Communicate Association matters to the Sections and fosters responsible interchange among Section leadership as well as between Section leadership and other Association entities.
