Serving on AZA Committees
To be eligible for a committee chair or vice chair position, candidates must be professional fellows in good standing. Committee member individual qualifications include:
- Proven performance in their field
- Commitment and time to serve
- Permission of home institution
All committees and task forces work under the guidance of the Board of Directors. The Chair-elect of the Board, in consultation with the Executive Committee of the Board and the AZA President / CEO, appoints all committee and task force chairs, except the Ethics Board which is elected.
How to Get Involved
AZA members should express interest to committee chairs, attend open meeting portions of committee meetings held at mid-year and at the annual conference, volunteer to work on task forces, and then watch for the Call to Service from Chair-elect Jackie Ogden in CONNECT and INSIGHT in the Spring of 2013. Be sure to secure the support of your institution for committee participation.
For more information, please contact Barbara Pueschel, Board and Committees Liaison, 301-562-0777 x226.
Another opportunity for involvement with AZA is as a Course Instructor. Applications for service as an instructor are considered on a rolling basis.
