Internal Committees

Finance Committee

The Finance Committee oversees SOCM’s finances, develops a proposed budget, meets before each board meeting to review financial statements that will be presented to the board, and assesses how the budget is being met. The committee also recommends new financial policies, as needed, for action by the board. The SOCM Treasurer serves as the chair and presents a finance report to the board at each board meeting.

Subcommittees: SOCM Resource Project Board

Personnel Committee

The Personnel Committee hires all staff with the exception of the executive director and the office manager. The committee also participates in an annual staff evaluation, hears grievances and appeals, and recommends new personnel policies to the SOCM Board. The Executive Committee of the SOCM Board appoints Personnel Committee members.

Nominating Committee

The Nominating Committee meets once a year to nominate a slate of officers and at-large members to serve on the SOCM Board. Voting on the slate takes place at SOCM’s Annual Meeting.  The Nominating Committee consists of the board’s president and the chairs of each internal and issue committee. Although the meeting is not open to other SOCM members, the committee requests input from all SOCM members before it meets.
