Commissioners' Committee

Statement of Purpose

Solicit ideas from commissioners for discussion, evaluation and recommendation to the Executive Committee; keep commissioners informed of issues and actions and similar items with national or regional importance of a policy nature; and interact with other committees as necessary. Commissioners must recognize that all Commissions do not have the same authorities or responsibilities in each State.

The Commissioners' Committee is an all state and all commissioner/board member forum. It is both an educational and informational session that occurs at the annual conference in July and the mid-winter meeting in January of each year. This allows members an opportunity to understand what is happening in other states from the perspective of someone with a similar charge. This session helps to identify the role and responsibilities of a commission/board member and provides a learning environment through sharing experiences and providing networking opportunities. It is an excellent venue in which to discuss tough issues that most states have in common.
