Governance Meetings

The Committee on Committees has clarified three types of committee meetings:

Open. May be attended by any ACS member. At these sessions, members are encouraged to voice concerns, issue compliments, offer suggestions, express interest in, or raise questions about matters over which the committee has purview. The assumption is that participation is welcomed and will be orderly and courteous. Only committee members can vote.

Executive. Attendance and participation are limited to officially appointed/ elected committee members, associates, advisers, consultants, staff liaisons, and the appointed Committee on Committees liaison. Liaisons from other groups and ex officio and elected councilors may attend; participation by these groups would be at the invitation of the chair. Only committee members can vote.

Closed. The committee chair declares any executive session closed when confidential or sensitive personnel, financial, or legal Society matters are discussed. Only officially appointed/elected committee members, associates, consultants, staff liaisons, and the appointed Committee on Committees liaison shall remain in the session. Others may stay in the session at the discretion of the chair.

During the open and executive committee meetings, ACS members are given a chance to express their views on issues under consideration before these issues are acted on by the board or the council, or to bring up other subjects that deserve attention. Members are urged to examine the agenda and make known any opinions or ideas they may have. If you cannot attend the particular sessions involved, write to the officers listed or ask someone attending the session to speak on your behalf. For further information, contact the officers listed.
