Commitment Letter

I understand that as a member of an IACRN Committee, I have an ethical responsibility to ensure that the committee does the best work possible in pursuit of the organization's goals. I believe in the purpose and the mission of the organization, and I will act responsibly and prudently as its steward. As part of my responsibilities as a committee member:
  1. I will interpret IACRN's work and values to the community, represent the organization, and act as a spokesperson.
  2. I will convey our committee members' needs and the organization's values to the committee chair or Board of Directors liaison and speak out for members' interests.
  3. I will read and uphold the organizations bylaws.
  4. I will attend at least 80 percent of the committee meetings and be prepared to participate by reading materials provided before the meeting. When I attend the annual conference, I will be present at the in-person committee meetings scheduled during that time.
  5. I will work within the committee's charge and organizational strategic priorities to meet committee and organization goals; I will actively participate in committee activities.
  6. I will excuse myself from discussions and votes where I have a conflict of interest.
  7. I will stay informed about what's going on in the organization. I will ask questions and request information. I will participate in and take responsibility for making decisions on issues, policies, and other matters. I will not stay silent if I have questions or concerns.
  8. I will vote in every IACRN election.
  9. I will work in good faith with staff and other committee members as partners toward achieving IACRN's goals.
  10. If I don't fulfill these commitments to the organization, I will expect the committee chair or the board president to contact me and discuss my responsibilities with me.
In turn, the organization will be responsible to me in the following ways:
  1. I will be sent reports and up-to-date information that will allow me to meet the responsibilities of my role.
  2. Opportunities will be offered to me to discuss with the committee's chair the committee's programs, goals, activities, and status; additionally, I can request such opportunities.
  3. The organization will help me perform my duties by keeping me informed about issues pertinent to this committee's charge.
  4. The chair of this committee and staff will respond in a straightforward fashion to questions that I feel are necessary to carry out my responsibilities to this organization. Committee members and staff will work in good faith with me toward achievement of our goals.
  5. If commitments to me are not fulfilled, I can contact the board president to discuss the committee's responsibilities to me.
