Job Description – Steering Committee

The Steering Committee reports to the President and Board of Directors. Duties include:

  • Explore local and state-wide resources available to the society. For example, members could meet with the historical commission, the select board, the preservation commission, elementary, middle, and high school personnel, local colleges, state historical and archeological personnel, and anyone else who may provide some outside perspective.
  • Canvas our own society members, board members, and committee members for their goals, thoughts, ideas, perspectives.
  • Make recommendations for one-, five-, and ten-year goals and suggest how the society might reach these goals.

The Board of Directors can then evaluate and prioritize the findings, and present final plans to the membership.

Note: Members of this committee do not usually work on the project themselves. Generally, the Project Manager, and other members of the Project Team, actually do the work implementing the project.
