All committee members, other than the Board of Trustees and Executive Committee, are appointed by the President. All standing committees are established in the Bylaws, but the President has broad latitude in the “charge” given to the committee. The President may also appoint ad hoc committees to serve on specific projects.
If you are interested in serving on a committee, review the committee list and then contact the President to express your interest in either a particular committee or committee work in general. Most appointments are made in the Spring, with service to begin at the close of the annual meeting. When possible, committees meet during the annual meeting to plan their work for the coming year.
Please note that there are usually more people who want to serve than there are committee slots, so there is no guarantee that all requests can be granted.
