If you want to learn more about how the Governance Committee members interact with INK, please look into the INK Governance Framework for more detail.
Indiana Code 22-4.5-10-7 establishes the Indiana Network of Knowledge Governance Committee and addresses its composition. The Governance Committee consists of at least the following six individuals: Commissioner of the Department of Workforce Development (or designee), Commissioner of the Commission for Higher Education (or designee), the state Superintendent of Public Instruction (or designee), one member representing private colleges and universities appointed by the Governor, one member representing the business community appointed by the Governor, and the INK Executive Director (who serves in a non-voting advisory capacity). The Governor may appoint additional members to the Governance Committee as necessary to ensure the continued success of INK. Additional members appointed under this provision must represent other state agencies or partner organizations, as determined by the INK Governance Committee, that submit data to the INK. Members appointed by the Governor serve at the Governor’s pleasure.
The Governor shall appoint a Chair from the voting members, who will serve for one year or until a successor is selected. INK Governance Committee meetings shall be at least quarterly or at the call of the Chair. A majority of the voting members of the Governance Committee constitutes a quorum for the purpose of conducting business; an affirmative vote of a majority of the members of the Governance Committee is required for the Governance Committee to take official action.
