CLEAR Council

The CLEAR Council includes representatives of all CLEAR groups and comprises all Funding Committee Members, Center Directors and the Team Lead of the Global Hub Team.

The Council sets the overall strategy and goals for the Program and assesses its performance. It also provides advice to and seeks decisions from the Funding Committee regarding key aspects of the Program. The Council is chaired by the Program Chief Executive Officer. Decisions are reached by consensus. The scope of work for the council includes:
Strategy: Provide strategic direction to the Program Performance and Accountability: Provide advice to the Funding Committee, the Centers, and the Global Hub based on portfolio and performance reviews.
Governance: Undertake activities that strengthen program governance and management.

The CLEAR Council has also selected two members, representing the CLEAR Centers and the global funders respectively, to form an Executive Sub-Committee; the CLEAR CEO is the third member of the Executive Sub-Committee. The Council delegates decision making on implementation to the Executive Sub-Committee so that the Sub-Committee drives strategy implementation by making key operational decisions as needed. The Sub-Committee meets quarterly (virtually) or on an as-needed basis, as determined by the CEO. Decisions are made by consensus.
