|IRC Committees & Planning Teams|
The board of directors of the International Relations Council relies on active committees and planning teams to develop strategies and action plans for the work of the organization. Committees (comprised of an appointed chair, vice chair, and planning team leads) and planning teams (comprised of individuals with a range of responsibilities) include a variety of perspectives and are intentionally comprised of a mix of board members and IRC members who are not part of the board.
Joining a planning team is an excellent way to become more involved with the IRC, and we welcome the participation of new and seasoned IRC members. Please note that all members of planning teams should be individual members of the IRC or be part of an IRC member organization and be prepared to commit to a year of volunteer service with the IRC. Planning teams work year-round and may be joined at any time.
For more information on joining a planning team, please contact Matthew Hughes, executive director, at firstname.lastname@example.org, and specify the team(s) you would like to join.
