  • filter_dramaWhat exactly are Advisory Committees?

    Simply, they advise a group of volunteers that meet regularly to provide advice and support to a business. These can range from consulting on broad policy issues to focusing on the nitty-gritty of committee work. Participating as a member of the Combined Fund Drive’s Advisory Council, you will assist in establishing standards, criteria for charitable participation, creating a campaign structure and the promotional materials. Additionally as a member you appoint and educate volunteers.

  • placeWhat makes an Advisory Committee Effective?

    An advisory group is more likely to be effective at providing advice and support when:

    1. 1. The representatives (directors and staff) genuinely desire the committee’s input;
    2. 2. The committee is comprised of knowledgeable, committed individuals whose interest in volunteering their own time is sustained by appropriate recognition and rewards;
    3. 3. The committee’s group processes and procedures for governance allow for regular meetings, a sense of engagement and ownership, and sufficient access to information about the program so that the committee can offer useful advice and support;
    4. 4. The expectations about the roles of the committee in providing advice and support are clear, candid, consistent, and well communicated.
    5.
