Schools Subcommittee

The Schools Subcommittee is a subcommittee of the Membership Committee.

The Schools Subcommittee shall consist of the 2nd Vice-President, a Schools Subcommittee chair and at least one additional member appointed by the Subcommittee chair. The Subcommittee chair will be appointed by the 2nd Vice-President in consultation with the Nominations and Appointments Committee, and with approval of the Board. Typically the Subcommittee Chair and appointed member will serve for two years in staggered terms.

While the Board retains responsibility for approval of specific School proposals, the Schools Subcommittee shall be responsible for providing oversight of the Society's Schools program, including (i) monitoring forthcoming School proposals, soliciting new proposals, and coordinating organizing teams as needed and (ii) maintaining helpful guidelines for organizers of Schools.
