Throughout its history, The COMISS Network has focused on providing an opportunity for its members to dialogue as equal partners. COMISS Network members come with varying individual tasks and responsibilities with the common goal of providing best practices for the provision of spiritual care in specialized settings. This dialogue primarily takes place at the annual Forum that is planned to offer time for education, “round table” discussions, networking and the sharing of information from the member organizations.
The COMISS Network is guided by a set of Guidelines approved by the member organizations. The Guidelines provide for the COMISS Network Leadership team of officers and at-large members who are elected on a rotational basis at the annual Forum and articulates leadership responsibilities and terms of service. The Leadership Team prepares the annual Forum program and oversees the preparation of annual Spiritual Care Week themes and accreditation activities of the COMISS Commission for the Accreditation of Spiritual Care Services. The COMISS Network is served by an Executive Administrator and Bookkeeper, the only employed positions of the Network.
