Process for appointing members to APS committees
Chairs of the general policy and subject matter committees work with the senior councilor-at-large of APS (chair of the Committee-on-Committees) and a designated member of APS staff to appoint members to their committees. Each of these three individuals has distinct duties, as specified below.
Duties of the committee chairs and vice chairs
Duties of the senior councilor-at-large
Duties of APS Staff.
Length of service for committee members and chairs
All committee members are appointed to 3-year terms, renewable at the committees’ discretion.
Effective date of appointment to committees
All committee members begin their term on a committee at the end of the annual committee meeting. Their service on that committee concludes at the end of the APS annual meeting 3 years later.
Committee chairs begin and end their service as chair at the end of the APS annual meeting. This will make it necessary for the outgoing and incoming chairs to work together in nominating and appointing new committee members.
