What type of work does the committee do? The NACNS Board of Directors will develop and assign a charge for each committee.
When will I hear if I am selected? Once the call for nominations for committee volunteers closes, the NACNS president and committee chairs will review the applications. Committee volunteers should receive communication about their acceptance in June 2021 . Our goal is for all committees will begin meeting in July 2021

If I am currently on a committee and at the end of my term, can I reapply? Yes, you may re-apply for your committee if your term is up. Our bylaws limit an individual’s service on a committee to 6 consecutive years. If you are unaware if your term is ending, please contact Ana Hilton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
