Emerging Issues and Outreach Committee
The objectives of the Emerging Issues and Outreach Committee (EIOC) are to:
(a) To identify developments in the external environment around the world, outside of the Board’s strategic planning process, that may have implications for the Board’s strategy and work plan, require Board action or otherwise merit Board attention; and
b) To advise the Board on ways to enhance the effectiveness of the Board’s outreach efforts, including with respect to the scope and focus of, and general approach to, its outreach activities.
