Frequently Asked Questions

What does this pay?

There is no pay, this is a volunteer position.

What is the time commitment?

The time commitments for members varies based on the charge and tasks. Committee meetings occur monthly and on average, the workgroups meet for 1-2 hours every few weeks. If there is a specific task with a tight deadline, the pace can, and does, pick up (sometimes up to twice per week).

Is there travel involved?

The committees typically hold at least six meetings a year in-person. Workgroup meetings are mostly virtual (web and phone), with possible in-person hearings as needed. All in-person meetings are held in the greater DC area, and travel/lodging/per diem support is provided for members. Virtual participation is also an option, if you are not available in-person.

Can I nominate someone other than me?

In order to create an account and submit an application in the Application Database, individuals need to nominate themselves directly. Letters of support can be attached to the individual application.
