InspireNet Leadership Council (ILC)

Update, Sep 2015:

Since its inception in 2009, the network has adopted a collaborative leadership model engaging leaders from academic and practice settings. InspireNet's leadership model is in a state of transition as the network seeks partnerships to sustain the network after its funding has ended.

The Management Team is stable and continues to lead the network through this transition.

Until recently, strategic leadership was carried out by the volunteer InspireNet Leadership Council (ILC). We acknowledge with thanks the contributions of past ILC members, listed below. Through their efforts, InspireNet has positioned itself as BC's health services research network, leveraging a virtual platform to bring together over 4,000 members.

A new advisory body will be determined and announced when the future of the network is clear.
