About the Core Committee

The following text is paraphrased from the POD Network By-laws:

The activities, affairs, and property of the POD Network are overseen by a board of directors known as the Core Committee. The Core Committee consists of no more than 18 persons, including the President, President Elect, and Past President. Additionally, the Executive Director is an ex-officio member of Core. Members are elected for 3-year terms by a vote of the POD Network membership. Five new members are elected each year. Core Committee members must be members of the POD Network. Incumbent members of the Core Committee must wait at least one year before being candidates for another term.

The Executive Committee carries forth the work of the Core Committee between the spring and fall Core Committee meetings and oversees other important aspects of the organization’s work. The Executive Committee is the President, President Elect, Past President, Chair of Finance, and the Executive Director.
