Committees generally meet via a one-hour Zoom meeting once per month, plus additional responsibilities outside of meetings.
The Awards Committee generally involves more time commitment from January to March, as it involves judging and planning the awards ceremony.
Appointments are typically for one year, though recruitment for the first-ever committees is kicking off in October 2021, so the term for the inaugural committees is from November 2021 through June 2022.
Moving forward, committee member appointments will run from July to June (with applications being accepted in June, appointment in July, and the term running through the following June).
Committee members may re-apply each June to express their interest in being appointed again.
