PARTICIPATORY ADVISORY COUNCIL (PAC)

ABOUT

The MIND Foundation’s PAC is a representative board with special initiative and information rights that advises the MIND Foundation’s leadership team on matters related to organizational development, strategy, projects, and staff.

For this purpose, the PAC meets regularly (~once a month) to discuss issues that were brought up from within the MIND team or the member’s community. You can actively support this process by submitting your feedback via the form below.

After each meeting, the PAC informs the Board of the MIND Foundation about the outcomes of the discussion and raises awareness to address the discussed issues. If needed, the PAC also assists in implementing new processes, changing existing structures, or whatever else is necessary.

The PAC will consist of 2 representatives from each of our three membership groups: Students, Friends, and Professionals, and six elected representatives from the MIND Foundation staff. This amounts to a total of 12 representatives in the PAC that elect one chairperson.
