NASC Committees

General Info

NASC committees provide opportunities for member involvement in decisions that affect your Association. Committees meet via conference call as often as necessary to discuss issues pertinent to the successful operation of the Association. Each committee is chaired by a member of the Board of Directors who, along with a NASC staff member, will be present on each call and report back to the board on the developments within their committee. We strive to provide you with an exceptional experience, so before joining a committee, we ask that you review the requirements and committee descriptions below. 


Interested in volunteering?  Submit a volunteer interest form to let us know!



Committees meet via conference call between six (6) and 12 times yearly or as needed. Calls are generally 30 minutes to one hour in length.

  • Each committee has a standing conference call.  See below for conference call schedules.
  • If you need to miss more than one conference call, we ask that you refrain from participating on a committee until there is a time that works better for your schedule.
  • The NASC reserves the right to remove inactive committee members who have not participated on two consecutive committee calls.
