The process of creating an action plan for the committee generates commitment among members and stimulates club interest in committee and club activities.
Committee chairs must also work with club leaders and committee members to ensure steady progress is being made toward achievement of goals as envisioned. The following steps can help club committee chairs motivate committee members to work together to achieve a goal:
Importance of Communication
A committee cannot act effectively in isolation. Its operations and decisions must be based on the communicated needs of the club. Similarly, members of a committee must communicate with each other to ensure smooth working relationships and avoid miscommunication or duplication of effort. Committee chairs should regularly share the committee’s progress toward its goals with all club members.
It is especially important to keep the club president and board informed regarding the activities of the committee.
