It is important for HRPPs/IRBs to understand decisions and policies as being part of a larger institutional context. To do so, it is essential that institutional memory is preserved and can be easily accessed and shared with IRB staff, chairs, and members. Attendees should have experience as an IRB administrator or chair, including responsibility for recruitment and retention of IRB members and/or staff, and knowledge and experience drafting policies, guidelines and/or standard operating procedures. This session will be hosted in Zoom and attendees are encouraged use the video and audio features to actively participate in the dialogue.
