If the work load for SEMPA requires a specialized work group, the Board of Directors will create the appropriate committee. Committees will assist the Board with its work.
Annually, the Board will delegate work to committees in the form of objectives. The committee will then be responsible for accomplishing these objectives.
Committees can meet either in person or via conference call at the will of the President, Executive Board or Committee Chair.
The Board can create or dissolve committees, which require a majority vote.
SEMPA has the following committees:
- Education Committee
- External Relations/Advocacy Committee
- Leadership Committee
- Membership Committee
- Nominating/Elections Committee
- Postgraduate Committee
No monies will be designated for committees except for budgeted conference calls. Monies may be requested by the committee by submitting a formal request to the Board. All speakers or activities requiring funding must be approved by the Board. Allotted staff time for each committee will be at the discretion of the President based on the specific objectives assigned to the committee.
Orientation will be provided to new committee members and Committee Chairs.
Committee members will be appointed by the President at his/her discretion. Applications will be solicited from all members on an annual basis, but committee members may be assigned at any time.
The SEMPA Board of Director committee member will be a standing member.
