IECRM has several volunteer committees that meet regularly. The committees typically each have a Chair, Co-Chair, and IECRM Staff Liaison. Committees are considered working-committees, as they regularly have tasks that they are working on in order to advance the work of IECRM. Similar to a governmental structure on the federal or state level, committees provide a recommendation or pertinent issues back to the full board of Directors for review.
The duties of each committee Chair are to schedule, conduct and take notes for the group. The Chair should communicate with all members with dates and items of specific meetings, along with appropriate agendas. The Chair should help facilitate discussions and preparations for the assigned tasks. A Co-Chair should be selected, in order to support the Chair and fill-in for the Chair in their absence.
Most committee meetings take place at the IECRM office, 11429 Pearl Street, Northglenn, CO 80233.
The following are the current committee descriptions:
Emerging Leaders Committee

Diversity & Inclusion Committee
In 2018, the IECRM Board of Directors established a strategic Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) initiative to build on our previous and existing efforts to expand our apprenticeship program.
IECRM is committed to increasing diversity of people, ideas, and beliefs and building an inclusive environment. It’s part of our strategic plan to recruit, retain, and recognize a diversity of people, range of interests, experiences, values, and cultural richness that define our country, industry, and the IECRM community.
