Professional Development Committee
This Committee will be tasked with clearly establishing the corporate responsibility profession and the components necessary to set it up as a broadly recognized profession. The committee will review the range of components that define other professions, determine which best lend themselves to establishing the role of the corporate responsibility professional and create a roadmap for implementation of those components.
The committee will identify which, if any, other organizations have similar initiatives and strive for cooperation and, where possible, consolidation of efforts. The components of a profession may include such things as a) defining a code of conduct, b) developing and publishing a “job description” for the Corporate Responsibility Officer, c) defining a certification program, d) a related curriculum, and/or e) development of a communications process for informing members and prospective applicants. The Committee shall be presided over by a Governor appointed by the CROA Chairperson and consist of at least two additional CROA members.
Recent work products include:
- Structuring and Staffing Corporate Responsibility, A Guidebook
- State of the Corporate Responsibility Profession Report
- Draft Code of Ethics
- Job Resources
