Council Steering Committee

The Council Steering Committee (CSC) guides and coordinates the work of the Council of Representatives and has the authority to conduct the affairs of the Council between Council meetings, but it may not contradict prior Council or Board policies or decisions. The agenda for Council meetings is set by the CSC.

The membership of the CSC includes the Speaker, the Speaker-Elect, the Past Speaker (non-voting), the President-Elect, the CEO (non-voting), and four (4) members elected from among the Councilors to staggered two (2) year terms. Nominees for membership on the CSC include all Councilors, who are not officers of the Society, in their second year of service. The Speaker chairs the committee.

The CSC is a Council Committee.
