In addition to a Board of Directors, the efforts of the ESI Subcommittees are aimed at meeting the ESI’s goals outlined in our Position Statement. In the early phases of our launch, we have prioritized the efforts of our Governance and Advocacy & Funding Subcommittees. As we move forward, the efforts of our other Subcommittees will begin.
