MTCAZ encourages member involvement through participation on any of the committees or taskforces. Member-based committees play an important role in achieving an effective and progressive association and are a vital part of the association’s operations.
There are some basic purposes to utilizing a committee and advantages to be gained. Bringing together a cross section of member knowledge and experience, an effective committee can generate qualified group judgment and continuity of thinking. The committee’s ability to provide direct member involvement ensures that MTCAZ truly represents its members.
Committee seats are limited, in some cases, and require approval by the Executive Director. Terms of service are normally one year. Each committee usually meets at least three to six times per year.
