SEAC General Assembly
The SEAC Assembly votes to approve all SEAC recommendations, positions, best practices, and publications. Recommendations approved by the Assembly must then receive final approval by the SEAC Steering Committee to ensure consistency with SEAC Operating Guidelines and objectives.
SEAC’s Guidelines for Assembly Member Representation
Because of the Assembly’s critical role approving all SEAC recommendations, positions, best practices, and publications, it is essential to maintain the independence of this body and avoid conflicts of interest. As part of maintaining the integrity of the Assembly, all Assembly members are required to identify at the start of their appointment if they are representing themselves or a specific entity. If this representation changes at any time during their appointment, Assembly members are required to promptly inform IREC. This is particularly important if members are employed as consultants and represent multiple clients outside of SEAC.
Additionally, in order to maintain SEAC’s credibility, if a member is voting on a recommendation, position, best practice or publication and their opinions are different from what was identified in their interest category or stated at the start of their appointment it is critical that the member discloses their representation. For example: The member can say “speaking for myself” or “speaking for XX organization.”
