The committee application and appointment process normally occurs each fall for the following calendar year. However, the new leadership team have decided to extend the application process throughout 2020 in order to build a more viable team. Applications are currently being accepted for service in 2020. Members may request the application by clicking the link below.
While we will make every effort to accommodate volunteers on the committee(s) of their choice, applying for a committee does not guarantee an appointment. Our goal is to accommodate as many volunteers as possible, while also considering available space with consideration given to the overall make-up of each committee—i.e., member type, chapter size, geographical representation and primary specialty.
The current application process will remain open throughout 2020. Members are encouraged to submit applications expressing their interest. Region VIII is now accepting applications for the Events & Strategic Planning Committees.
The appointment process will occur monthly throughout 2020.
The Region VIII Regional Vice President—or Region VIII Assistants, where applicable—works in conjunction with committee chairmen to match the scope of each committee's work with the strengths and relevant experience of interested volunteers. The volunteers best suited to serve on each committee are selected and notified of their appointment(s) prior to the Region VIII Monthly Teleconference meeting on the 1st Wednesday of each month.
Unless otherwise specified in the committee description, the term for committee appointments is one (1) year. In order to inspire fresh ideas, prevent stagnant thinking and encourage member involvement, service on any committee is limited to three (3) consecutive years.
For example, if a member serves on the Fund Fundraising Committee in 2020, 2021 and 2022, they will not be eligible to serve on that committee in 2023.
