OASIS Committees Supporting,
Developing and Growing
OASIS’s committees are composed of volunteers from our Board of Directors, Advisors, and members who work in collaboration to help develop and promote the association’s mandate, vision and goals.
The committees are always seeking new volunteers to help drive the association forward and help create a positive voice in their respective industries.
If you are a member and would like to learn more about the various committees or to volunteer, feel free to email us at: email@example.com

The Executive Committee (EC) has the power to act on behalf of the full Board of Directors (BODs). The EC is a standing committee that often acts as a steering committee for the full BOD. Functioning as a steering committee, the EC prioritizes issues for the full BOD to address. Although the EC comprises senior-level leaders, the committee members report to the BOD.
Though the EC meets frequently and independently, they’re still ultimately accountable to the BOD. Taking advantage of the latest board management tools, they submit regular meeting minutes, documentation and a record of votes to the BODs.
Professional Development Committee

The Professional Development Committee (PDC) will establish procedures and advise in providing technically sound and proficient educational courses and programs that enhance members’ professional knowledge through technical information exchange, facilitation of research opportunities, and encouraging diversity in professional development.
The PDC also provides the Board of Directors (BODs) the Long-Range Education Plans and Implementation Procedures in accordance with the OASIS Strategic Plan.

The Membership Services Committee (MSC) gathers information on and analyzes both member and non-member needs and perceptions of OASIS. The MSC uses this information to make recommendations to improve the Association’s resources, services and membership benefits along with ways to make prospective and current members aware of them. The MSC also makes recommendations on outreach strategies to attract prospective members to increase the OASIS membership base, especially among under-represented groups. Lastly, the MSC makes recommendations on ways to acknowledge new members and to encourage participation in OASIS activities and committees.
