Committees

Committee Descriptions

Committees are one of the most productive tools an association has to accomplish the organization’s goals and objectives. Whether you are chairing a committee or are a committee member, you face the challenge of getting involved in the work the committee was formed to accomplish. The recommendations of a committee often has a direct impact on the decisions made by the officers and the board of directors of the association. Plus, it’s a great networking opportunity.
