New Volunteer Structure and Chairs 2013-2014

As part of its strategic plan, the board recently evaluated SCACPA’s more than 80 distinct programs and services, including committees and task forces.  As a result, the board reengineered a number of committees and task forces in order to engage more members for shorter-term, project-based opportunities. As new project based opportunities arise, a call will be sent to members gauging their interest. Instead of the once per year open enrollment period, there will be an ongoing opportunity to get involved with SCACPA, simply email the staff liaison for the group of interest at the email noted, if you have questions.

Committees

Standing Committees: A group of members, appointed by the Board, to whom a matter is referred, or is committed for attention, investigation, analysis, or resolution. A standing or permanent committee is intended to continually consider all matters pertaining to a certain subject. Meets at regular intervals throughout the year.
  • Audit Committee –  William Barefoot, Chair – Karen Hancock, Staff Liaison
  • Political Action Committee  – Doug Snyder, Chair – Erin Pate, Staff Liaison
  • Finance Committee – Robert Tilton, Chair – Erin Pate & Karen Hancock, Staff Liaisons
  • Nominating Committee –  Sylvia Kitchens, Chair – Erin Pate, Staff Liaison

General Committees: A group of members, appointed by the Board, to whom a matter is referred, or is committed for attention, investigation, analysis, or resolution. Other committees meet regularly but do not exist due to a constitutional mandate; therefore, they can be dissolved should the purpose no longer meet a need.
