CSDA’s strength and effectiveness as an organization is directly related to our ability to involve the member district board members and staff and Business Affiliate members in the work of the association. The talents and energy that both groups bring to CSDA and to the issues that concern special districts in California through active involvement are critical components of CSDA’s success.
With this in mind, we are asking for volunteers from your district or company (staff and/or board members) to participate and contribute on one or more of our committees and/or expert feedback teams to assist in shaping CSDA.
If you or any others from your district or company would like to become even more involved as a member of CSDA, please review and complete this form. Committees need dedicated participants who can expend the time to provide their expertise in directing the activities and policies of CSDA. CSDA does not reimburse for committee related travel expenses.
Regarding CSDA’s Expert Feedback Teams, when a need for feedback arises on a particular policy matter, CSDA advocacy staff will send an e-mail to an expert feedback team asking for its input. Team members need only reply with their thoughts, opinions, and experiences. The workload of a team member will ultimately be what he or she makes of it. Team members will not be required to travel; they should expect to receive a handful of e-mails each month and, on rare occasions, they may be contacted by phone.
Please return the form by 5:00 p.m. on October 13, 2017. The selection and ratification of CSDA’s 2018 committees will take place in November and selected participants will be notified by the end of November. Committee participation begins in January 2018.
