Much of the work of the Society is done though its committees and task forces. A committee is a body of one or more persons, appointed by the President or the Board of Trustees to consider, investigate, take action on certain matters or subjects, or to do all of these things. There are two types of committees – standing committees, which have a continuing existence, and ad hoc or special committees, which go out of existence as soon as they have completed a specified task. Each committee is led by a chairperson and has as many members as needed to carry out the functions of the committee.
In an effort to respond quickly to issues as they arise, the ASET President and Board may appoint a task force or project team to handle a specific activity. A Task Force is a temporary group of individuals and resources assembled for a specific objective. The objective or project assigned to a task force is typically concise and can be completed within a short period of time. Examples may include working on a policy position statement or developing a resource manual on a topic.
Committees and task forces primarily conduct their work through e-mail and periodic conference calls. The frequency of conference calls is dependent upon the scope of the committee. Attempts are made to limit conference calls to no more than one per month and are scheduled at times convenient to the majority of the members of the committee.
ASET strives to match your interests, skills and professional knowledge with the needs of each committee, task force or other leadership opportunity. The following questions will help us determine how we can best utilize your talents and interests. Every effort will be made to place you on the committee or activity of your choice.
