Committees & Advisory Groups

Standing Committees

Committee Formation

The membership in a standing committee is determined by each zone at their Annual Zone Meetings through nomination and election. The maximum number of members for a committee from each zone is two. A standing committee may need to establish an ad hoc committee within their own committee to handle a specific task. These are not to be confused with the ad hoc committees struck by the board.

Member Term - The member must be reelected at every AZM.

The vacancy of a committee member can be filled at any time of the year by the board of directors, at the request of the chairman of that committee.

Advisory Groups

Group Formation

Advisory groups are formed by the board of directors. Members of the group are appointed by the board of directors with the advice of the executive committee and agreement of the group chairman. These groups are highly specialized in nature. The members of the group must be skilled in, or subject matter experts in the matters dealt with. A minimum of one member of the board of directors shall be a member of these groups.

Member Term - There is no time limit for membership on these advisory groups but all members and the chair of such groups serve at the pleasure of the board of directors and are required to be reaffirmed annually.

The vacancy of a group member can be filled at any time of the year by the board of directors, at the request of the chairman of the advisory group.
