Partners in Crisis (PIC) Operating Framework

1.  PIC initiatives are developed and overseen by a formal Advisory Board (appointed by the administrative agents – MHAM & MACED), which elects a Chair and may establish committees.

2.  Membership in PIC is open to any interested organization and any interested jurist.  Prospective members are provided with PIC’s mission, goals, initiatives and outcomes.  Membership in PIC means acceptance of and support for those statements.  Members may be asked to serve on committees established by the Advisory Board.

3.  Members annually have opportunity for input on how PIC initiatives should be revised.  After reviewing such input, the Advisory Board finalizes initiatives for the next year, and members have the opportunity to reaffirm or withdraw their involvement with the coalition.
