The Executive Committee provides strategic and operational guidance to the National LIP Secretariat to safeguard the vision, mission, and core values of the Secretariat. The NLS Executive Committee consists of LIPs/ZIPs staff selected to represent diversity of LIP/ZIP voices. Representatives are selected by an independent LIP/ZIP Nominations Committee following an open nominations process and serve for a two-year term. Only LIP/ZIP representatives serving terms have voting privileges. Executive Committee members serve as representatives of their LIP/ZIP, and their membership is transferrable in the event of staffing changes within their organization.
