Stewardship

HESI STEWARDSHIP PROGRAM

The HESI Stewardship Program, administered by the Program Strategy and Stewardship Committee (PSSC) of the HESI Board of Trustees, is a mechanism to ensure the high quality, scientific content of HESI committee work products, encourage a continued focus by each committee on achievable objectives, ensure the best use of critical resources, and enhance HESI’s scientific credibility.

Review Committee Summaries

 

Each year in December, the Board of Trustees will receive the HESI Annual Report. Board members will review committee summaries for major achievements, pending changes, areas of intended impact, major concerns, and specific requests for support or input.

Focus on Overall Scope & Impact of Organization

 

At the Board of Trustees meeting each January, HESI staff will present slides on each scientific committee, highlighting key achievements from the past year. Board members will discuss general themes, trends in committee activities, strategic impact areas, concerns, and specific requests for support or input.

Review Committee Budgets

 

At the Board of Trustees meeting each January, Board members will review committee budgets and determine the overall fiscal health of the scientific committees.

 

Confirm Portfolio Review

 

After reviewing the HESI Annual Report, the committee budgets, and the staff presentations, Board members will certify via voice vote that they have fulfilled the by-law requirements of reviewing committees' scientific, operational, compliance, and budgetary standing.

The PSSC also oversees the HESI peer review process. A public trustee serves as Editor-in-Chief for coordination of the HESI peer review process. Read more about HESI peer review here.
