Hundreds of AGU members volunteer their time and expertise by serving on committees and task forces. These committees/task forces work together with the Board, Council and staff to advance AGU’s strategic plan. Examples of how this works are provided in the committee role diagram.
The AGU President works with other volunteer and staff leaders to: develop charges that align with the strategic plan, support upcoming initiatives, appoint chairs, and recruit people with a wide range of perspectives. All committees/task forces provide reports to the Board and Council twice a year.
The diagram below depicts the AGU committee structure for 2013-2014.
