  • Schedule Meeting and RSVP (Due 8 weeks prior to meeting)
    Complete the RSVP form to let us know if you will be meeting, so we can schedule meeting space appropriately.  Every effort is made to accommodate the requested time slot; however, if your first choice fills up you will be scheduled in the other time slot.  Space is limited and filled on a first-come, first-served basis. When thinking about your meeting, consider whether your members would benefit from a joint meeting with another committee. (Best Practice Tips for Joint Committee Meetings)

     Please use this form to arrange for AV equipment and submit presentations/materials.  PDFs of the presentations, any handouts, and agendas will be provided to attendees electronically via email and uploaded to the meeting website.
