About Us

BTE Governance

Bridges to Excellence essentially functions as a not-for-profit company with a Board, including structured input from all stakeholders. Below is a description of the overall program organization structure and their roles:

Board - BTE is proud to have an Advisory body comprised of BTE purchaser participants, licensees and stakeholders, that make decisions on program strategy and direction.

Executive Committee - Acts as the advisory and administrative body with a President, Secretary and Treasurer.

Employer Advisory Board - Advisory body comprised of BTE participating employers that  provides broad input into BTE topics and direction.

Regional Teams/Steering Committees - Overall, the regional team is responsible for regional coordination and market engagement. Previous experience has shown that organized regional teams with informal leaders have worked effectively to operate BTE locally; however, regions can establish an operational team structure that best meets their market and customer needs. Led by an identified informal leader, the team includes all participants, stakeholders and allied organizations.
