Public Outreach Policy

ISCDBU Public Outreach Guidelines and Procedures

To establish an agreed procedure within ISCDBU to review and approve prospective public pronouncements by ISCDBU,its subsidiary groups,or by ISCDBU members proposing to speak on behalf of the Society,doing so in a timely manner and in a way that fully addresses the respective interests and concerns of ISCDBU’s tripartite membership.

Agreed Principles:
  • • Public outreach should serve to enhance the standing of ISCDBU science and promote progress toward ”Quality through Science.”
  • • Public outreach must draw on tripartite consensus science and debate within the Society.
  • • Public outreach should focus on relevant scientific issues of interest to the global and local scientific communities and to the public at large.
  • • Public outreach will generally occur by agreed written communications,although oral presentations may be approved by the ISCDBU World Council when circumstances warrant.
  • • Internal ISCDBU review and authorization process should be expeditious to the extent possible with final approval by the President of ISCDBU in consultation with a core group of Society leaders,including the Global Executive Director and the chairs of relevant committees (Science Committee,Public Relations and Communications Committee,Publications Advisory Council in the first instance).
  • • ISCDBU Geographic Unit Councils,working committees and the steering committees of Scientific Advisory Groups,with tripartite participation and consensus,may issue public statements on behalf of the GUs,working committees after consultation with the ISCDBU World Council President and Global Executive Director,whose roles are to ensure that such statements enhance the standing of ISCDBU science
The ISCDBU World Council,Geographic Unit Councils or Boards,working committees or the steering committee of a Scientific Advisory Group (SAG) within ISCDBU may identify potential issues and consult within ISCDBU and with the respective Executive Directors (EDs) to make an initial determination of the need and relevance for ISCDBU public statements. ISCDBU EDs are charged with following broader policy developments so as to be able to advise appropriately and to alert the World Council,GU Councils or Boards or approved groups to potential public outreach opportunities of benefit to ISCDBU.
