Steering Committee

As the leadership body of the Peace Council, the Steering Committee is primarily responsible for matters concerning the organization’s structural and financial sustainability, as well as its overall political direction. We meet monthly to discuss and make decisions regarding SPC’s activities in these areas, working to ensure that SPC staff and volunteers can effectively carry out our Statement of Purpose. The Steering Committee currently has eight members and is looking to welcome more!  Click here to learn more about the Steering Committee Member Agreements and Qualities.
