Leadership Development Advisory Council
As IHRIM’s only standing council described in its Bylaws, the Leadership Development Advisory Council (LDAC) periodically assesses association governance, programs, volunteerism, and professionalism. Chiefly, LDAC works with the IHRIM Board and staff in identifying, recruiting, and vetting candidates for IHIRM leadership roles, as well as recommending methods, tools, and best practices to continuously improve IHRIM’s operations through Board and Committee composition, tactically address short-term leadership challenges, and strategically suggest responses to megatrends involving employers and their workforces.
Profession Development Advisory Council (PDAC)
By invitation of the Board, members of the Profession Development Advisory Council (PDAC) review the educational, training, and experiential requirements to succeed as an HR technology professional – from career sunrise to sunset. Like all other councils, the PDC may be comprised of IHRIM and non-IHRIM members, particularly thought leaders, subject matter experts, and S-suite executives, who convene to discuss, assess, and suggest potential career pathways involving exclusive IHRIM services/resources and enriching programs offered by the Association’s strategic partners., e.g., peer mentoring, continuous learning, and achieving/maintaining HRIP certification.
PDAC also discusses and reviews industry trends and the necessary alignment of IHRIM programs to meet employer needs, material relevancy, and enterprise implications, identifying specific topics, skills, and other opportunities that will enhance and enrich the professional development of IHRIM members.
Technology Review Council (TRC)
