August 2012 - Archived Issue of Board Matters

Dear STTI members, 

The international board of directors met on 21 August 2012 for a video conference to conduct the business of STTI. The following reflects the decisions made, direction setting undertaken, and the information that was shared.  

Decision Making
The board approved the minutes of the 2 June 2012 board of directors face-to-face conference as submitted, and reviewed, edited, and made recommendations for revisions to the 31 May 2012 and 1 June 2012 face-to-face board meeting minutes in Indianapolis, Ind., USA.
Via e-mail vote, the board approved the creation of the Clinical Partnership Award.  

Direction Setting
The Position Guidelines Task Force was formed to evaluate and recommend criteria for members to be considered for appointment to STTI international committees, task forces, and advisory councils. Patrice Nicholas, chair of the task force, gave an overview of the recommendations from the task force.

  • Based on discussion of the recommendations, the board decided to promote use of the VIProfile for member interest in serving on advisory councils/task forces, rather than using an additional form.
  • The president will host a conference call with the chairs in November 2012 to solicit feedback on how the committees, advisory councils and task forces and their members are interacting and progressing in meeting expected outcomes.
  • Additional components will be added to the Orientation for Chairs in January of the new biennium.

The president will solicit feedback from the members of committees, advisory councils and task forces about their participation via e-mail.   

Information Sharing
Representatives from Greenwalt CPAs (John Keller, Anita Sherman) presented the IRS Form 990 for STTI and the Foundation and responded to related questions from the board.

The president shared a summary of the 2012 International Nursing Research Congress, conducted in Brisbane, Australia.

Terrance Barkan, of GLOBALSTRAT, will provide expertise on global growth strategies for international organizations to the board of directors and staff directors at the face-to-face board of directors meeting 19 September 2012 in Indianapolis, Ind., USA.
