Professional Affairs Executive Committee

The Professional Affairs Executive Committee (PAEC) reports to the Board of the Faculty of Pain Medicine (FPM) and oversees, guides and reports on the activities of the Professional Standards Committee, Research and Innovation Committee and Scientific Meetings Committee to ensure alignment with the strategic direction of the Faculty. The PAEC provides guidance to the Director of Professional Affairs in relation to professional standards.
The board has developed terms of reference (for the committees that report to it). The aim is to streamline both board and committee work by clarifying the purpose of and arrangements for committees, particularly to define which functions are delegated to committees (and reported through to the board) and which require board approval. The terms of reference includes standardised definitions of a quorum, voting rules and that electronic decisions should be recorded in the minutes of the next meeting.
