To the new AA: Welcome!

The job of an AA, or Administrative Assistant, is an interesting and multifaceted one.

Broadly, the AA supports the committee and protects the legislative process. The AA (in conjunction with the chair) makes sure that all the committee members have the information that they need in a format they can use, that the decisions of the committee are recorded and respected, and that the committee itself is accountable to the larger structure of which it is a part. The AA and the committee chair should take the time to establish a close working relationship--it takes a lot of work to run a committee and two people are quite a bit smarter than one.

A good AA has the potential to support a committee and help it have a very positive impact on the organization. A bad AA can bog things down, waste a lot of time, and cause endless frustration. Be good!

Here are your general areas of responsibility:
