Continuity Committee

Message from Chair of the ENT Continuity Council

The purpose of this message is to give you some insight into the Entrepreneurship Division Continuity Council. As you can imagine, with the rotating leadership of the Executive Committee (5-year leadership term, 5 different roles comprising PDW Chair, Program Chair, Chair Elect, Chair, Past Chair), ideas, decisions, processes, and best practices are at risk of being lost. Our hard-working secretary, Diane Sullivan, is extremely diligent in documenting everything and we have put into place documentation that can help as one rotates into their new role throughout their leadership term. However, there is still some potential for the loss of important tacit knowledge. The purpose of the Continuity Council is to help solve this issue. 

The committee is chaired by the immediate Past Chair and is comprised of three additional former Chairs of the Division. This year, some of the duties include:

  • Orient new leaders
  • Give members of the leadership track counsel (both individually and as a group)
  • Provide leadership coaching, as needed
  • Improve communications (including evaluation and oversight)
  • Assume special projects as assigned by the Division Chair

Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or suggestions for our division.
Thank you for your support of the ENT Division!
