House of Delegates
How are mega-issues identified?
The process is outlined in the HOD Policy Manual (Policy C.2) and summarized below:
• A mega issue is strategic and futuristic in its scope and is projected to impact the profession 3-5 years into the future. It cuts across multiple goals or outcome areas.
• Mega issues address key strategic questions the organization must answer, illuminating choices the organization must make and the challenges that will need to be overcome in moving toward the envisioned future.
• Members as well as delegates are encouraged to submit potential mega-issues at any time, using the Identification of Mega Issues form. Or if there is a member issue that does not qualify as a potential HOD Mega Issue, encourage him/her to contact the Academy. The appropriate Academy organizational unit will address their issue or concern.
