National Committees

The NAWCC organizational structure incorporates volunteer committees to provide for Member and public participation in its programs, operations, and workings, and to minimize the number of permanent staff required for conducting business. In addition to the primary purpose of each Committee or group of Committees as described in these Bylaws, the Board shall establish policies and duties described in the Standing Rules.

The Board Chair and the Executive Director will be ex officio nonvoting members of all committees with the exception that the Chair will not be a member of the Nominating and Elections Committee.
