Steering Committee Nominations
The Steering Committee is the highest decision making body of the US Campaign between annual conferences. It is responsible for policy decisions, strategic planning, fundraising, and personnel decisions.
The Steering Committee is comprised of twelve volunteers who are elected by our membership annually to serve a three-year term. At each National Organizers’ Conference, at least four members of the Steering Committee step down to allow for new members to be elected.
Members of the Steering Committee are expected to:
· Participate in monthly conference calls with US Campaign staff
· Attend two face-to-face meetings each year
· Phone bank member organizations during fundraising and membership drives
· Work with staff and Steering Committee members on other fundraising initiatives
Other Steering Committee activities may include:
We welcome our membership to nominate individuals to run in the 2005 Steering Committee election. All nominees must be members of organizations or individual members that are in “good standing” with the US Campaign. Click here for more information about membership with the US Campaign.
