Leading ATFE: A Call for Nominations
Here’s what would be expected of a Steering Committee member. The SC typically meets monthly by videoconference and generally spends the first year of the biennium following up on charges given to it by the membership, and the second year planning the next consultation. The committee also sponsors continuing education webinars, sets directions for ATFE in keeping with the mission, and shepherds the financial, legal, and governance business of the organization. It’s not a small job, but it is an interesting one!
There are two subcommittees of the Steering Committee: the Research and Publications Committee and the Local Arrangements Committee. R&P is always open to new members and has traditionally nominated its own chair from within. LA arises spontaneously each biennium when a member or small group of members decides to propose a locale for the next consultation.
If you feel a call to become more involved in leading ATFE in one of these capacities, please contact the SC chair.
