What is the Role of a Committee or Task Force?
As a Committee or Task Force Member, What Will I Do?
Each committee and task force has a unique purpose and goal. Your contribution will depend upon the committees/task forces of which you are a member. Typical activity includes actively participating in planning meetings and providing expert input on various topics.
In addition, task force members commit to:
- Knowledge of the area to be addressed by the committee/task force,
- Collaborative mindset,
- Interest in professional networking and learning,
- Provision of current, relevant information resources to enhance the committee/task force experience and outcomes,
- Continued outreach, i.e. to take information outside the practicing profession and bring information inside the profession, e.g. new speakers, new resources and new services and applications,
- "On-site" resource as a volunteer to Association activities, and
- Having and using e-mail.
Do I qualify to be a Committee or Task Force member?
The SCACPA encourages both practicing CPAs and members in industry, government and education to become active on committees/task forces. There are non-practicing CPAs serving on almost every committee/task force who recognize professional and personal value for service.
What is the Time Commitment of a Task Force member?
Committee and task force members are asked to commit to being available for two to four meetings per year and to treat their committee/task force appointment as a priority; including taking the appropriate time before, during and after activities to support the function.
How Many Committees and Task Forces are There and What are They?
The SCACPA has over 20 committees/task forces which serve diverse purposes. For more information on a specific committee/task force, view the list of committees/task forces, their roster, goals, meeting minutes and upcoming meetings.
