Organization Committee

Overview
Organization means getting everyone working toward the same goal. The tough work of building consensus and cooperation among the groups that have an important stake in the district can be eased by using the common-sense formula of a volunteer-driven program and an organizational structure of board and committees.

Functions
The Organization Committee plays a key role in keeping the board, committees, staff, and programs in good shape by attracting people and money to the organization. The committee ultimately manages the financial and logistical aspects of the organization. That is accomplished by raising money, managing staff and volunteers, promoting the program, and managing finances by developing good accounting procedures.

Leadership
Lynne Fox and Julie Abbott serve as the Committee Chairwomen.
