Association of California School Administrators COMMITTEE/COUNCIL GOALS/AGENDAS & BOARD ISSUES Goal/Agendas for action: Each committee/council determines at the beginning of each year what its goal/agenda for the year will be. Some committees/councils adopt multi‐year plans which are carried forward with periodic review. In choosing their action agendas, committees/councils may engage in any activity not contrary to policy or the operating procedures of the association. Please note that while committees/councils are unable to adopt policy or positions on behalf of the association, they are encouraged to develop recommendations for the Board of Directors to adopt. Board‐adopted issues: The committees/councils constitute an "expert" resource for the membership and the Board of Directors. In that capacity, committees/councils may be asked by the Board to devote part of their agendas to issues or problems identified by the Board as critical to ACSA's current action agenda and to furthering ACSA's mission and vision. A specific product may be requested, such as a position paper or legislative proposal, or the Board may identify an area of concern and leave it to the committee/council to choose the product it prefers. Committee/Council identified issues: Committees/Councils are also the center of ACSA‐based professional networks. As such, they assist in the identification of emerging and current issues, and are encouraged to develop activities which pursue interests' specific to the makeup of each committee/council. Products related to these activities may range from being sure that ACSA has a part in the deliberations of another organization to identifying issues, resources, or information of use to the membership or Board. 106
