Committees draw on the skills and interests of a broad cross-section of the membership to study issues of interest and importance to the organization or to local government in general. They also provide an opportunity for member connection and networking.
The Call for Volunteers for 2013 is now closed.
The 2013 Volunteer Request Forms were due by April 12th, 2013. Please check back in early 2014 for information on available opportunities for the 2014-15 year.
Task Force/Committee Member Roles, Expectations, and Responsibilities
Committee volunteers commit to:
- Participate actively in the committee by attending at least one committee meeting per year and letting the chair know if you are not able to attend any meetings. (Members must participate in order to remain on the committee.)
- Follow through on assigned tasks by meeting deadlines, returning phone calls, responding to requests for input via e-mail, etc.
- Respect the opinions of other committee members and the role of the committee chair to build consensus on the specified task.
- Represent the committee to assistants' and managers' associations in your area by attending state or national association meetings, making brief presentations, or writing articles about the committee's work for state or national association newsletters.
