CREATION OF LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE OF BOARD OF TRUSTEES 

The following proposed change to the Constitution and Bylaws was prepared by the Constitution and Bylaws Committee at the request of the board of trustees.

Background: In 2015 the Talent Pool Task Force delivered its final report to the AAPD Board of Trustees. Among a number of recommendations, this task force recommended that the AAPD establish a permanent committee of the Board of Trustees solely focused on leadership development opportunities for AAPD members. The Board agreed and directed the Constitution and Bylaws Committee to draft a Bylaws amendment that would add such a committee under the listing of other standing board committees in Chapter V, Section 18 of the Bylaws. Among other duties, this committee would evaluate the current AAPD programs, the Leadership Institute at the Kellogg School of Management/Northwestern University and the Advanced Leadership Institute at the Wharton School of Business/University of Pennsylvania, and make recommendations for their future continuation and direction. The committee would also actively work to identify volunteer leaders to assist the President-elect in the annual process of making appointments to the various AAPD councils and committees.

The amendment would be inserted after the following paragraph under Chapter V, Section 18 (Committees of the board of trustees), after paragraph F (Strategic Planning Committee):
