Volunteer Committee


The Volunteer Committee leads the development of initiatives and activities to inform, engage, and celebrate the volunteers that power the Association. This committee also collaborates with other committees, serves as a resource for all volunteers, and helps recruit new volunteers to the Association.


The committee has no expressed or implied governing power or authority. As an Association committee, the committee reports to the executive director.


  • The executive director shall appoint the chair and members of the committee. The executive director will follow the volunteer recruitment process to select a chair.
  • The committee may include non-director persons whose experience may assist the committee in the performance of its duties. The committee chair will follow the volunteer recruitment process and recommend members to the executive director for appointment.
