GEOList Summary: Advisory Committee Position Description
Hello GEO Members,
I’ve been searching through the GEO Archives to find samples of position descriptions for advisory committee members, but have so far come-up empty handed. So, I want to pose the question to the larger group.
At the Iowa West Foundation, we have three, topical advisory committees. These committees are responsible for reviewing grants and making funding recommendations to our trustees. As our grantmaking shifts over time, we know that the role of these committees need to shift as well. We are looking to develop position descriptions in partnership with the committee members in order to help ensure that we’re keeping everyone aligned as we move forward.
This brings me to two questions for you all:
1. If you have advisory committees that are made of external members, what are their core areas of responsibility?
2. Do you have position descriptions for these committees that you’d be willing to share?
Thank you for any thoughts / samples you can share.
