The role of the Finance committee is primarily to provide financial oversight for the organization. Typical task areas include budgeting and financial planning, financial reporting, and the creation and monitoring of internal controls and accountability policies.
The role of the Legislative committee is primarily to review, monitor and address legislative issues and proposals. The issues are related to both State (NJ) and Federal legislation and mostly include regulatory concerns that have an impact for the Association members.
The role of the Membership and Bylaws committee is primary to engage Association members in support of the Association's overall mission values and goals. Activities are focused on recruitment, & retention of members including consideration of new programs or services that will support these efforts and are a value to Association members. Periodically there will arise a need to propose changes to the Membership bylaws.
The role of the Meetings and Marketing committee is primary to engage and plan the Membership meetings, Marketplace, educational, recognition and social events. The committee takes an active role in supporting an organization's fundraising efforts and marketing as well. Their purpose lies in deciding how to get the word out and how to combine a cause with a marketing message that resonates with the Association members.
The role of the Safety and Risk committee is to identify key and emerging risk management issues that affect the members of the Association. The committee will work to ensure safety and risk management best practices are in line with the Association's mission and relate to our commitment to safety. The committee meetings are held virtually quarterly.
The role of the Scholarship Committee is to review blind applications received for the Scholarship Program annually and to provide recommendations to the Board for the two recipients.
