About Committees

From the Bylaws

( §I.O. ) COMMITTEES: Terms of committee appointments will be for three years beginning at the end of the annual meeting. Committee terms will be staggered. Appointments and reappointments shall be at the discretion of the President. Committee membership is open to paid staff, appointed or elected officials, and board members from participating agencies. As far as possible, committee members shall come from all types of agencies and from the six regions of the state (see addendum). Each committee chair, appointed by the President, shall report to the Governing Board quarterly and provide a formal report at the annual meeting, with the written report posted on the member web page. People interested in serving on a committee should be given an outline of the committee’s responsibilities. They should apply to the President to serve, outlining their own background and experiences that would benefit the work of the committee. All committee member expenses related to serving on a committee must be borne by the committee member or his or her agency. Each committee chair is responsible for keeping the committee’s procedures consistent with the Bylaws and Strategic Plan.
