MAAR has several standing committees and other annual appointed committees that review specific issues and make recommendations on action to the Board of Directors. In addition, the President and/or Board appoints task forces to address specific issues within a definite period of time. MAAR members also serve on various committees that report to the Education Foundation.

Please refer to MAAR's Open & Closed Meeting Policy for committee meetings if you are interested in inquiring about attending as a guest.

Applying to Serve on a Committee

Application Process

The committee sign-up and appointment process occurs each fall for the following calendar year. Members will be notified via email, social media and our website when committee applications open for service in 2021.

Appointment Process

The MAAR President—or MAAR Education Foundation, where applicable—works in conjunction with committee chairmen to match the scope of each committee's work with the strengths and relevant experience of interested volunteers. The volunteers best suited to serve on each committee are selected and notified of their appointment(s) in mid-December.

Term Limits

Unless otherwise specified in the committee description, the term for committee appointments is one (1) year. In order to inspire fresh ideas, prevent stagnant thinking and encourage member involvement, service on any committee is limited to three (3) consecutive years.

For example, if a member serves on the Benevolent Fund Fundraising Committee in 2018, 2019 and 2020, they will not be eligible to serve on that committee in 2021.

Thank you for your interest in serving on a committee or task force at MAAR. The committee selection process is currently closed and all committee appointments for 2020 have been made.
