I'm curious to know if any of you have true committee chairs for your fundraising committees. If so, what are some responsibilities for your committee chair?
If you don't have committee chairs, are you the one (Executive Director) doing all of the work to plan meetings, agendas, goals?
Just curious what committees look like for other organizations. 🙂
I have a "Chair" for our run and gala, but I would define their role as executive leadership first and foremost. Approval as needed and a sounding board when needed. They assist me in leading our Committee Meetings. Some are stronger than others, which is normal. They are the first ones I call when I have an urgent event need or need to delegate a task. We are evolving to a stronger committee role and in the workload. So far so good.
Hi Ashley, great question. It is a process. I've attached the expectations I set each year in the first Executive Committee meeting with all Chairs present. Every Chair is different, but the baseline expectation is that they will be setting meetings, sending meeting invites and creating and following an agenda.
Well, I tried to attach. You can email me at email@example.com and I'm happy to share. It would not accept the PDF I tried to attach.
