Committee Size and Activity

CSGA committees are important membership recruitment and retention vehicles. The goal of each committee chair is to recruit a maximum of 10 committee members from a diverse cross section of CSGA members. The Committee needs to be active, with communications occurring at a frequency of once a month at a minimum. Committee membership is a good training and recruitment tool for senior positions within the Association and Committee members are excellent informed ambassadors for CSGA and about CSGA’s activities.

Responsibilities of Committee Members

The Membership Committee members are responsible for pursuing the vision and terms of reference of the Committee. To this effect, members participate in all discussions pertaining to membership and work on projects or issues brought forward by the Committee, the Board of Directors, the sections and the members as appropriate.

Membership Term

Committee members are appointed by the Board of Directors through the Board member responsible for the Committee for one year with the intention that members will serve for a two (2) year term. Membership recruitment and retirement is staggered to ensure continuity and Committee institutional memory.

Meetings and Reporting

Throughout the year communication will take place primarily through e-mail. Conference calls will be arranged by the Chair. Meetings will have minutes and will be recorded. Regular communication of the plans and activities of the Committee will be provided to the membership through the Committee’s Annual Report to the Annual General Meeting, articles in Psynopsis and information on the web site and to the Board of Directors through reports to each Board meeting by the Committee Chair/Co-Chair.
