CII’s New Sector Committees Take Flight

There’s a renewed sense of energy and excitement up and down the halls of CII. Our team is making notable progress in carrying out the first steps of our Next Generation Plan. We are pleased to announce that we have confirmed the participation of the members in the Sector Leadership Committee (SLC). This group will serve as the essential interface among CII’s five industry Sector Committees. The SLC will coordinate and communicate plans and actions among the Sector Committees as well as with the membership and standing committees. They will also assist with research requests and budget allocations for the Sector Committees.

After nearly two months of working closely with CII’s Board of Advisors to identify the right people from their teams to carry out CII’s Next Generation strategy, we are thrilled to be very close to confirming the participation of everyone serving in the five industry Sector Committees. With only a handful of confirmations still needed, we are making significant progress in establishing CII’s path forward. During the last two weeks of June, our teams led “kick-off teleconferences” for each industry sector:

  • Power, Utilities, and Infrastructure
  • Upstream, Midstream, and Mining
  • Downstream and Chemicals
  • Healthcare and Facilities
  • Manufacturing and Life Sciences

These kick-off calls were quite productive. Each of the five Sector Committee teleconferences shared a similar agenda:

  • introduction of Chair, Vice Chair, Academic Advisor, CII Associate Director, and committee members
  • introduction of CII’s Next Generation Governance Plan
  • discussions around expectations of the committee and the development of its charter
  • discussions around commonalities and research needs of the group
  • confirming upcoming meeting dates to develop the path forward

As mentioned above, we asked our Board of Advisors to identify colleagues from their organizations who could best serve on these Sector Committees. In doing so, many have provided us with an entirely new team of players. Due to the influx of new faces and names across the newly-formed Sector Committees, we found it critical to spend a fair amount of time introducing CII and our new governance plan during last month’s kick-off teleconferences. We are excited about the new energy coming out of these committees and will be presenting updates on each Sector Committee’s progress in the very near future. Please stay tuned for more updates on our progress.
