Committee Structure

AERC Committees

Volunteering on Committees

The Board of Directors has approved AERC’s committee structure. These committees are comprised of AERC members and non-members. Committees are responsible for the establishment of AERC procedures, policies, and programs which are then presented to the Board of Directors for final approval before implementation. Committees may form subcommittees or task groups to work on individual projects. AERC Committee Sign Up

Committee participation is necessary to achieve the overall objectives of the AERC and coordinate activities in an efficient and effective way. AERC committees, sub-committees, and working groups are tasked with developing the technical, marketing, certification, and organizational policies and procedures for the AERC. All committees are led by a committee chair, who is responsible for leading the work of the committee, tracking progress and establishing deadlines, recognizing issues as they arise, and assigning tasks to committee members.

Sub-committees are responsible for the development of specific programs or procedures. Working Groups are responsible for more specific tasks and are convened on an as-needed basis.

Committee participation is open to interested member companies, organizations, and individuals. One membership equals one vote.
