MARAC Meetings Coordinating Committee
The Meetings Coordinating Committee was established in 1985 as a special committee by the Steering Committee. A revision of the Bylaws in May 1987 made it a standing committee.
Mission and Goals
The responsibilities of the Meetings Coordinating Committee are:
- To solicit and recommend future sites for semi-annual MARAC meetings for the Steering Committee approval. Considerations in these decisions include the need for geographic balance, scheduling, and available resources in a suggested meeting site.
- To interpret and recommend policy relating to Meeting planning and to document policies in the Meeting Policy Manual [pdf]
- To provide oversight, support and guidance to the Local Arrangements and Program committees, and to serve as a liaison between the Steering Committee and the Local Arrangements and Program committees.
- To arrange for the workshops held at MARAC's biannual meetings.
The Committee consists of up to nine members, including the MARAC Meetings Coordinator who serves as Committee Chair. The MARAC Chair-elect appoints all members of the committee, except for the committee chair and the ex-officio members. All members, except the Committee Chair and ex-officio members, shall serve two-year staggered terms and may be reappointed for a second term.
The Program Editor shall be appointed by the MARAC Chair-elect and shall be a full voting member of the Committee. The MARAC Chair and Treasurer will serve as ex-officio members of the Committee.
