Barnes Association Consultants will help you get the best from your volunteer groups.

Committee Structure and Process Review. This review provides for a more effective and efficient process for member input and decision-making, including clear roles for committees and task forces and clear roles for participants (chairs, members, staff, and Board members). By giving your committees clearer direction, they will have better focus, saving them valuable time, and offering them a better volunteer experience, all while helping your Board of Directors complete its critical work.

Education Session on Association Committees. This educational session will inform and educate your Board, volunteers and staff on the best practices regarding committee structure and process. It includes content on roles and responsibilities, types of committees, the recruitment and appointment process, how to manage committee meetings, and the relationship between your Board and your organization’s committees.
