They assist committee leaders to stretch their wings, and are there to catch them if they are about to fall. Committee Liaisonsshare information with one another, and with the elected Leadership Team, so that big picture Association goals are not neglected when a challenge happens to arise in a single committee or with a particular issue, and so that complex or groundbreaking policy matters can be appropriately prioritized for discussion and debate in the relevant committees and by the Board of Directors. Through their efforts, Committee Liaisons facilitate improved communications across multiple committees when issues that cross traditionally defined committee responsibilities are under consideration.Committee Liaisons also serve as the eyes and ears of the elected Leadership Team, and play a valuable part in identifying future Association leaders.Committee Liaisonsare appointed by the incoming Association President to a one year term, and attend the meetings of the Executive Committee.
