Committees play an essential role in determining how well EPN progresses in our mission each year. The work of these committees focuses on a number of specific objectives designed to help us accomplish the goals outlined in EPN’s Strategic Plan.
They are the gateway to becoming involved in EPN activities. They provide an excellent opportunity for you to network with others in your field, and stay current on issues in the neighborhood while contributing to the continuing evolution of research and practice. Committee members receive valuable and timely information about ongoing and recently completed data, news, and current programming.
Why should you become a Committee member?
- You believe in EPN’s mission statement, to unite “institutional and resident stakeholders to leverage and strengthen the neighborhood’s assets and resources so that children and families are inspired to stay, grow, graduate… and stay.”
- You wish to assist in defining the future practice of our specialty. The mission is a special and unique pursuit, critical to the future of our students and the community we serve.
- You have special knowledge, skills or interests in a particular committee’s work area. If you have the time, are willing to do the work, and have a passion for that area, you represent exactly what a committee really needs.
- You believe in the concept of community. Involvement in service to EPN at the committee level provides an excellent opportunity for you to have a voice.
