The New Programs Committee will develop new programs and educational opportunities in support of PREA's mission.



The committee comprises approximately eight members. The committee size changes from time to time based upon the requirements. The membership consists of the Chairperson of the New Programs Committee (which may be either a board or non-board member); two members with a strong interest in education and research, one of which will be a member of the Plan Sponsor Council Executive Committee; and four other members representing both the investors and other members. The exact size of the committee will be determined by the president.
