SSPC and NACE announced the town halls along with the formation of 13 ad-hoc integration teams last month.

The teams were reportedly appointed by the SSPC-NACE Steering Committee and consist of members and staff from both organizations. Each team is focused on a different area of the associations’ operations and services.

“We are entering a very exciting and challenging period of this process for the SSPC and NACE community,” said Tim Bieri, President of NACE International.

“There are many details the ad-hoc teams have to work through before we can move to the next phase of combining; we are focused on retaining the best of both organizations while ensuring we take into consideration all of the feedback we have received from our members worldwide.”

The teams are reportedly working with McKinley Advisors, which was brought on at the beginning of the merger talks.

The teams are as follows:

  • Transition Team – will consider and approve plans and recommendations made by the other integrations teams as well as discuss other topics as they arise;
  • Accreditation Team – will develop accreditation recommendations for review and approval;
  • Brand Team – will develop NewOrg’s brand and visual identity;
  • Certification Team – will develop certification recommendations for review and approval;
  • Chapters/Sections Team – will develop recommendations for consolidating chapters/sections and establishing communities for NewOrg stakeholders;
  • Conferences and Events Team – will develop conference and events recommendations for review and approval;
  • Education Team – will develop education recommendations for review and approval;
  • Finance and Accounting Team – will develop a plan for integrating accounting structures and a financial strategy for NewOrg;
  • Governance Team – will review and provide feedback on governing documents and support strategic planning and research;
  • IT Infrastructure Activities Team – will develop IT infrastructure recommendations for review and approval;
  • Pre-Professional Activities Team – will develop pre-professional activities recommendations for review and approval;
  • Publications Team – will develop publications recommendations for review and approval; and
  • Standards Team – will develop recommendations for the standards development process and multi-year transition plan for existing standards.

SSPC and NACE note that additional teams and focuses could be added as the transition progresses, and information from the teams will be highlighted in upcoming joint town hall meetings that are slated to be held every month through December.
