MCAA Committee Chairman Handbook
Committees are the building blocks for associations. It's through strong committee structures that the work of successful associations is done. Committees and their chairmen, when motivated, help the organization involve members, develop direction and achieve its long-range goals.
You have made the initial, most important step...that's becoming an MCAA Committee Chair. Now the work and rewarding part begin...the work of running your committee. Following is a handbook that will assist you in your endeavor to successfully run an MCAA Committee.
In this handbook you will find what makes a quality chairman and how to select effective commttee members. Most importantly, it will spell out how to run an effective committee; however this handbook is only an overview. It is not meant to be a "literal" step by step instructional on what you must follow.
