Leadership Cultivation Committee

The Leadership Cultivation Committee is established to seek out and identify members to cultivate for leadership positions in order to establish and maintain a pipeline of future association leaders that fulfill the association’s goals for diversity, inclusion, equity, and accessibility. This committee adds value by institutionalizing best practices in three areas: strategic recruitment, effective member engagement, and revitalization.

  • encouraging association members to self-identify and volunteer for positions with committees, subcommittees, task forces, communities, other groups, and micro-volunteering opportunities.
