Self Nomination for ACT Board Committees - October 23

As a membership organization, the strength of ACT lies in the collective effort of our members that volunteer their time and expertise!

ACT's committees work on behalf of the Board of Directors to provide advice and guidance on the organization's operations, leadership, programming, and policy; helping the Board build a solid foundation for a strong future.

Why volunteer to serve on a committee? Committees provide a unique opportunity for members to dive deep into a specific issue or topic area that is key to the success of the organization. Volunteering is also great professional development and provides opportunities to collaborate with TDM professionals from across the country and with varying backgrounds. By surrounding yourself with others who do what you do, you'll not only learn about the industry, expand your professional network and acquire new knowledge but you'll be helping ACT grow at the same time.

Criteria for Committee membership: Committee members must be ACT members in good standing. Agree to attend and participate in all committee meetings.

What else is there to know? Most committees will meet a minimum of four times a year. Some committees may meet in-person during ACT's International Conference. All committees will be chaired by a member of the Board of Directors. Members may submit interest in several committees but may only serve on one at a time. Committee terms are two-years, starting January 1, 2021 and expiring December 31, 2022.
