QEP Advisory Council

QEP Advisory council at round table.


During the summer of 2012, the QEP Implementation Committee was expanded and repurposed as an Advisory Council to oversee the pilot and implementation phases of the project. The purpose of the USA Quality Enhancement Plan Advisory Council is to support and guide the development, implementation and assessment of the Quality Enhancement Plan. Responsibilities of council membership are to serve as an advocate of the USA QEP, review and make recommendations for continuous improvement of all aspects of the QEP, including but not limited to, implementation of the plan, assessment, planning and budgeting.

The Advisory Council meets on a regular basis to provide informed feedback to help shape implementation practices, evaluate success and determine modifications to the project that may required as it is implemented. The QEP Director will present regular updates and reports regarding the progression of activities leading to attainment of the project’s goals and objectives. The Council will elect a Chair every other year. The initial composition of the Advisory Council includes the following personnel:
