Councils & Committees
It takes careful coordination at many levels to keep our organization running, from our Board of Trustees, to Councils and Committees, and staff. This page contains an explanation of how our Councils and Committees work together. To see a visual of how all of these moving parts come together, take a look at a diagram of the structure.


The best way to get in touch with a committee is to contact a committee chair or current committee member directly. Contact information for committee chairs is available on each committee's web page.


To find a specific committee;

1. Scroll down to a list of committees organized by Council

2. Click on a committee's name to visit their page.



The Council structure improve access to information, fulfillment of Mission, and management of resources - both time and financial. Each Council aligns Committees engaged in similar activities with the intention of simplifying the communication structure and making all activities transparent to those Committees who shared broad objectives. Councils expand volunteer knowledge and awareness of the organization as a whole, and provide information about how each element contributes to a greater whole. Each Council is overseen by a Council Chair that works directly to provide oversight of their assigned committees. They provide a mechanism for committees to work together, share ideas and resources, “cross training”, review work plans, determine needs, and advocate for the committee.
