ahead, the Nominating Committee has outlined a number of items which
will help us in nominating future committee assignments.
The Committee recognizes that certain committee assignments require
more time and commitment than others. In a continued effort to find the
best people for the most appropriate positions, in the next 12 months it
hopes to categorize each committee according to the amount of effort and
commitment each requires. This will also help it to determine which
committees offer the best opportunities for newcomers and recent
attenders, so we can help them feel more involved in the workings of our
Meeting without feeling overwhelmed. The Committee also hopes to make
suggestions to conveners of committees that will help aid the transition
from one person to another, such as creating a handbook or calendar of
events for future conveners to follow.
The growth that our Meeting has been experiencing is wonderful and
brings many advantages as well as challenges. One challenge is continued
communication between committee heads, which will minimize duplication
of projects and allow all committees to take advantage of the work of
other committees. Our committee plans to examine ways to facilitate
communication between all committees.
And finally, we hope to revisit the guideline requiring a two-term
limit on conveners of committees to determine if this guideline should
apply to all committees.
