Of course, some reasons to serve on a committee could be that you want to make the world a better place, desire to improve the organization’s service to members and care about the cause. And serving on a committee and bringing your knowledge, energy, and expertise to the table is something that can not only benefit the organization but you as well.
Serving on an IECRM committee creates a membership experience that is engaging and meaningful by continuously providing compelling opportunities for professional enrichment. Through your committee engagement – whether you are a new member or a long-tenured one – you can achieve a deeper connection to our organization and its members.
IECRM offers you 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 are responsible for tasks to advance the work of IECRM. Committees provide recommendations or pertinent issues back to the IECRM staff or full Board of Directors for review.
Take a look at the committees of IECRM, what they do, and who leads them (here).
