The Council is WISE’s policy-making body. Chaired by the President, it is comprised of the vice presidents, secretary, treasurer, and members-at-large, and all of the committee chairs. The WISE Director and President emeritus also sit on the Council as non-voting members. Its officers and at-large members are nominated by the Nominating Committee, reviewed by Council, and voted in by WISE members at their annual meeting.
Among the Council’s responsibilities are fiscal health of the organization, curriculum approval, and WISE’s relationship with Assumption University. Meetings are monthly except in January, June, July, and August. Each meeting includes reports from every committee and a thorough review of the financial status. All major organizational changes must be approved by the Council.
