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.

Application Process

The committee sign-up and appointment process occurs each fall for the following calendar year. In addition to the committee sign-up form being posted on the website, MAAR will notify the membership via email that we are accepting request forms.

Appointment Process

Submitting a request form is not a guaranteed appointment. While every effort will be made to accommodate requests, appointments are limited to available space with consideration given to the overall make-up of each committee—i.e., member type, firm size, geographical representation, gender, ethnicity and primary specialty.

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.

Term Limits

In order to prevent stagnant thinking, terms on committees are limited to three (3) consecutive years.
