AD HOC COMMITTEEs & TASK FORCE

Meet the members of the global coffee community who make up the groups working on the Deferred Candidacy policy, the revision of events site criteria, and on equity, diversity, and inclusion at the SCA. The two ad hoc committees and task force were introduced in a special webinar on January 16th where attendees met the board co-chairs and staff leading the work of these groups. Visit SCA News to find all posts and webinar recordings related to the work of our ad hoc committees and task force.


Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (ED&I) Task Force

The objectives of the SCA's ED&I Task Force are to develop positions and process as organizational development activities, such as generational transition, multicultural skills, managing change, etc., for council members, chapter volunteers, board members, staff, and other groups. The Task Force will also develop on-boarding materials for volunteers that include training in ED&I principles, and conduct a gap analysis and other auditing of SCA’s policies and practices. 


Events Site Criteria (ESC) Ad Hoc Committee

The objective of the ESC Ad Hoc Committee was to publish recommendations for best practices for use in future SCA Requests for Proposals (RFPs) for event site selections and sponsorship, while meeting equity, diversity, and inclusion objectives. This ad hoc committee completed its work by identifying 21 site criteria to be used by SCA and WCE decision-makers when selecting sites, hosts, and sponsors for new events.

Deferred Candidacy Policy (DCP) Ad Hoc Committee

The objective of the DCP Ad Hoc Committee was to publish a Deferred Candidacy Policy document for SCA Competitions with the input of committee members and community members from around the globe, while meeting equity, diversity, and inclusion objectives. This ad hoc committee completed its work by publishing the DC policy and application document which can be found on the WCE website
