If the work load for SEMPA requires a specialized work group, the Board of Directors will create the appropriate committee. Committees will assist the Board with its work.
Annually, the Board will delegate work to committees in the form of objectives. The committee will then be responsible for accomplishing these objectives.
Committees can meet either in person or via conference call at the will of the President, Executive Board or Committee Chair.
The Board can create or dissolve committees, which require a majority vote.
SEMPA is now accepting applications for the following committees:
Complete the committee application. Applications must also include a current CV, one-page statement on why you are interested in serving, and signed SEMPA Leadership Agreement and Leadership Conflict of Interest Policy and Disclosure Forms (links to these forms are in the application). Letters of support are not necessary but may also be included.
Submit your completed application and paperwork to SEMPA at firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline to submit an application is JUNE 27, 2017.
No monies will be designated for committees except for budgeted conference calls. Monies may be requested by the committee by submitting a formal request to the Board. All speakers or activities requiring funding must be approved by the Board. Allotted staff time for each committee will be at the discretion of the President based on the specific objectives assigned to the committee.

The Chair will accomplish all objectives as set forth by the Board within an appropriate timeline.
The Chair will submit a bi-annual committee report to the Board.
